You'll hear jazz & poetry in performance… 
essentially "conversations" between brilliant and often funny poets and the Doug Lawrence Quintet. The night celebrates the ground-breaking music of Miles and Coltrane, and the poets and poetry they inspired, both then and now. Expect depth and electricity formed of words and music… and a rousing and reverential musical tribute to two of the greatest voices in jazz history.  

 

And by the way, here's what's been said of world-traveling sax man, Doug Lawrence:
"Think of Coleman Hawkins, Louis Armstrong, Ben Webster, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra. They were able to touch our collective soul with their extraordinary sense of phrasing. Tenor man Doug Lawrence has got it. His phrasing is fluid, relaxed, conversational and charming, just like his easy going, seductive Southern drawl."
