gonzos beatnik jazz

(above pic William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac)
This is a compilation of beatnik poetry and jazz that i put together while i had
access to some rare vinyl, cassettes and cd's at the radio station i was working at in Portland Maine......
Jack had always compared his writing to the fluid and improvisational meter of jazz greats like Chalie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Every song is started off with a piece of Beat poetry.
I have been a fan of Jack Kerouac and beatnik writing and its musical counterpart, jazz since my late teens. and finally w the availability of a radio station and an analog cd burner i got the chance to put together a nice compilation of writers such as  Kerouac, Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg,Lawrence Ferlinghetti, H.S.Thompson, and even a bit from Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter reading from Jack Kerouac's 'Visions of Cody' about Neal Cassidy fused with some of my favorite jazz composers such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Jimmy Smith, Jaco Pastorius and more!   This is Beat writers/jazz 101 folks.... so if you are slightly into these 2 genres of art, then you will NOT be dissapointed
as usual, email me if you have any questions and concerns... and as usual    ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!


"because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"-jack kerouac
