On Thursday, July 18th, I was invited by artist/curator and director of the Philadelphia Jazz Project, Homer Jackson, to record a few poems in their studio. I read Whitman’s Song of Myself, sections 6 and 7, multiple times — and one (Whitman-connected) poem of my own. It was great fun! I’ve never made a professional recording before.
The Philadelphia Jazz Project is helping to celebrate poet Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday. You can find out more on Twitter: @PHLJazzProject or Facebook: @PhilaJazzProject.
