Benjamin Boone takes his fascination with the merger of poetry and jazz to stunning new heights on The
Poets Are Gathering, just released Friday on Origin Records. True to its title, the album finds
the saxophonist-composer assembling a large group of acclaimed American poets—11 in all, including
Tyehimba Jess (Pulitzer Prize), Patricia Smith (LA Times Book Award/National Slam Poetry
Champion), Juan Felipe Herrera (U.S. Poet Laureate), and Edward Hirsch (MacArthur)—intertwining
their work with that of 20 musicians, including pianist Kenny Werner, guitarist Ben Monder, bassist
Corcoran Holt, and drummer Ari Hoenig.
Join Boone to learn more about the collaboration and hear music from the release.
Watch a powerful video from the collaboration, featuring poet Patricia Smith.
(Tuesday) 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
