Poetry in the Most Unexpected Places

Jazz, poetry . . . and the Internets.  Just found when I loaded Kurt Elling’s website:

Lurking in the shadows,

beyond where you can see,

working on the server

to improve its quality.

The site will be returning

just as soon as we can swing it,

all night our lamps are burning

to more promptly quickly bring it.

Now, set that to music, Kurt!  It’s got a good beat, and you can probably dance to it.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.

  1. Happily, the KE site’s back and ready for whatever new musical, magical surprises are in store. It’s jazz — you never know what’s going to happen next.

    A short note about and excerpts from “The Most Interesting Man In the World” are in the KE Forum. Excellent piece. Come join in the fun there if you’d like!
