Mr. Coe will read selected works with interludes performed by the musicians. With a wide ranging song list inspired by the text of the poems, the music will traverse jazz, funk, rhythm & blues, delta blues, and even classical styles, strung together in a seamless sequence outlining in words and tones the breadth of the American musical experience. Music by Charles Coe, J.S.
