Savor your Sunday with three-term U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky and POEMJAZZ, his innovative dialogue between poetry and music. Featuring Hankus Netsky (piano) and Stan Strickland (saxophone, flute), POEMJAZZ intertwines language and instruments, emphasizing the physical and melodic qualities of voice, as well as the way jazz improvisation can sometimes seem to speak. The result is an organic new sound and sense experience.

Fun fact: Given his dedication to highlighting poetry’s place in American culture, Pinsky is the only member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters to have appeared on both “The Simpsons” and “The Colbert Report.”

“In jazz, as in poetry, there is always that play between what’s regular and what’s wild. That has always appealed to me.”
Robert Pinsky
