Poetry & Jazz, New-School Style: An Evening of Words and Music featuring Sean Murphy, Jon Madof and Aram Bajakian

May 29, 2014 @ 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM

A throwback to the old Beatnik days, minus the bongos and clove cigarettes. Murphy, Madof and Bajakian will pass the mic in the spirit artistic solidarity. They will pass the hat for charity; all donations will benefit Chris4Life Cancer Foundation. Murphy will read from his new memoir Please Talk about Me When I’m Gone; Madof and Bajakian –critically acclaimed guitarists– will dip into their back catalogs and engage in the art of improvisation. Sometimes all of these things will happen at the same time. A poem or two may even be read once the caffeine kicks in. Come out for a night celebrating an old school tradition with a postmodern edge.

Please Talk about Me When I’m Gone, which pulled me in from the first page and never let go, is a mosaic love letter from a son to his lost mother, so everyone in the bereavement club should read it. But this memoir is also a thoughtful, compassionate meditation on being alive. I nodded in recognition, dog-eared pages containing lines I loved, felt my eyes well with tears. In the end you should read it for the reason anyone reads good writing: to feel less alone.”

—Jenna Blum, NYT best-selling author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers
