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.

When I started Sean’s book, I read a section and said to myself, ‘I’m going to email Sean to tell him how amazing that sentence is.’ Then as I read a little further I thought, ‘No, I’m going to email Sean to tell him what an amazing depth of knowledge and perception he’s giving us.’ And then, yes, you got it, on the very next page he wrote something that made me think, ‘His Mom is looking down on Sean with unending love for what he just wrote. This is one amazing book!
