Poetry and Jazz finds San Francisco writer Jack Hirschman joined by Terni Jazz Orchestra Ensemble for an innovative evening of music, poetry, and politics featuring the poet’s distinctive voice as an integral part of original music compositions.

The long-standing collaboration between Jack and the group of Italian musicians, led by composer/arranger Marco Collazzoni and saxophonist Francesco Guzzetta, began at the International Poetry Festival in Sarajevo, Bosnia, thanks to the patronage of Casa della Poesia di Salerno, and culminated with the recording of a CD presented at Teatro Valle in Rome in 2014.

Hirschman is one of the most distinctive voices of American counterculture, known for his radical engagement with both poetry and politics. In 2002, he received the Book Award Life Achievement from Before Columbus Foundation and in 2006 he was named Poet Laureate of San Francisco. Hirschman has published more than fifty volumes of poetry. RSVP at MOAD MDC HERE
