Read full description of the books:
This is Jack's work at its purest form. It's great hearing him, recorded with jazz musicians, the music form that he found so inspiring and creative. I feel like if his career had gone in a different direction there would have been more of these, each one more experimental in form and thought. But alas, not to be, but what we do have is still fantastic. Each album has at least one piece that stands out for me. on "Poetry For The Beat Generation" there's "October In The Railroad Earth" and "Charlie Parker", with the next album "Blues & Haikus" there's "Hard Hearted Old Farmer", and lastly, on the third album there's "San Francisco Scene (Beat Generation)", and an early history of bop.
Jack is a fantastic reader, though i don't know about other people's material but with his own, he really performs the wily material the way it should be read. What he aimed for was the wanderlust of not only the road but life itself, the little details, the moments. The beatific, as it were. The beautiful. It must be read that same way. His writing is a personality of someone sitting beside you at a bar, cold drinks in hand while he tells a long tale with his hands and face expressing every word and phrase. There's life to the words, volume. Language is key here.
If you've read any of his work and wonder how the words actually SOUND, this is a perfect place to go. It's a shame (yet another one) that we don't have a video of him reading, but maybe if you close your eyes and listen hard enough, you can see him waving and pointing and expressing his art with momentum and vibrancy, all sincerely and certain that we will listen.
