The premise here is simple enough: Take ten of the baddest, most daring and creative
poet - writers - performers from the new and old school and a dash of dynamic
world jazz, put them together on a CD, and let the
fireworks begin. Jazz Poetry Kafe: The
BlackWords Compilation CD is here and it's the
most eclectic collection of poetry, spoken work, acid jazz and world rhythms.
With rare vinyl appearances by Black Arts Poets Haki
R. Madhubuti and Sonia Sanchez and riveting performances by Grand
Slammin' Winner-Tonya Matthews, Prolific Writer-Tony Medina, and Phenomenal Jazz
Band-Fertile Ground, Jazz Poetry Kafe captures at it's peak, the current movement of Black
Literature and Performance.
