Great Regulars: Yes, very much so.

I have performed alternating poetry and music with the Takacz String Quartet, and last year Bruce Springsteen and I did a show where Bruce played behind poems like "Shirt" and "Jersey Rain"--and that actually worked surprisingly well. But the music that seems to most naturally fit is jazz. That's why we call it "POEMJAZZ."
