A long time lover of jazz and improvised music, Geoff Page has been writing poetry about the music and its musicians for many years. In this beautifully designed collection you’ll find poems about the US greats and local jazz luminaries; poems about audiences and venues too. This is pithy stuff and whether jazz is already embedded in your life, or you would simply like it to be, there will be something in these pages that speaks to you.

“If jazz could be written down in words, then this is it! Spirited, insightful, spontaneous; yet so cleverly constructed that every phrase delights and intrigues, revealing both unexpected and familiar truths about music and life.” Sandy Evans
