The word/jazz performance series and Jazz Outside! presents collaborative spoken word and improvised music performances that feature an ever evolving all-star cast of Austin’s best performance poets, musicians, and writers who create live-on-the-spot spontaneous compositions.These are decidedly not "poetry readings."
Now one of Austin’s longest lived spoken word and music projects (since 2000), word/jazz creates a comfortable setting for exploration of how traditional call-and-response can be adapted to performance situations where artists are free to improvise based on real time inspiration of the moment.
Come Join us on East 11th street this Thursday for some gnarly jazz and searing funk. 5 dollar suggested donation to Diverse Arts, BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE AND GET CRUNK! WD-41 at 8:00, Jean Claude Van Jamme at 9:00, concluding with a colaborative jam until 11:00.
