Kenneth Patchen with The Chamber Jazz Sextet. CLP 3004.
by [Vinyl Recording] Patchen, Kenneth.

Publisher Information:
Cadence Records,, New York:: 1957..

A Fine copy of this vinyl recording in a Near Fine sleeve. Morgan F1. Patchen experimented with different forms of writing and incorporated painting, drawing, and jazz music into his works, which were often compared with those of William Blake and Walt Whitman. Patchen's biographer wrote that he "developed in his fabulous fables, love poems, and picture poems a deep yet modern mythology that conveys a sense of compassionate wonder amidst the world's violence." Patchen received praise from the jazz critic Ralph Gleason for his jazz-poetry readings with the Chamber Jazz Sextet writing, "I think [Patchen's reading] technique presents the possibilities of an entire new medium of expression; a combination of jazz and poetry that would take nothing away from either form but would create something entirely new." Along with his friend and peer Kenneth Rexroth, he was a central influence over the San Francisco Renaissance and the Beat Generation. In this vinyl recording, poet Patchen reads eight of his poems including: The Murder of Two Men By A Young Kid Wearing Lemon Colored Gloves, State of the Nation, Do the Dead Know What Time it Is? And with the Sorrows of This Joyousness, The Lute in the Attic, Lonesome Boy Blues, Limericks, and I Went to The City.
