Clip: Jazz and the Beat Generation

I’m super excited::: Roof Beam Reader invited me to participate in the Beats of Summer series!

The literary blog is named after a J. D. Salinger novella and is run by a cum laude graduate of California State University, who earned an MA in English with an emphasis on American lit. He is now an academic adviser for two universities while pursing a PhD in English.

The Beats of Summer series so far has included:

Women of the Beat Generation in 3 Easy Steps from Jackie Mania

Jack Kerouac

William S. Burroughs

a giveaway

    Dear Stephanie

    Great to read something about Jack and his WRITING!!! Keep spreading the the light. The art of jazz and the sophistication of improvising remains a strong source of inspiration and shows the true relationship of Spontaneity and Formality to authors, composers, visual artists and all creative thinkers.With the magic of YouTube and the Internet, everyone can have a front row seat to hear and see the master improvisers of the past and the brilliant young pioneers of today, then turn off their computers and hang out with others and go home and create with more sources of energy and knowledge to draw upon.
    Your blog is helping to contribute to the information highway, which is the ONLY road to be on.
