Robert Pinsky To Appear Live @ The Jazz Standard

Robert Pinsky – former Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, acclaimed    translator  of the writings of Czesław Miłosz and Dante Alighieri, and the author of nineteen books – will appear on Tuesday, March 24th at The Jazz Standard. He will be accompanied by  Vijay Iyer (piano), Ben Allison (bass) and Matt Wilson (drums).

“I would be a famous jazz musician today if it weren’t for the single obstacle, deficiency of talent. I switched to words instead.” – Pinsky

“Its one of the many things music and poetry have in common is, you cant do it if you can’t listen” – Pinsky

Robert Pinsky traveled down to my university, Florida State this past November 2009. He performed with a stellar quartet of students two of which were featured in my Jazz/Poetry SYMPOSIUM.  To view this moving event please click here.
