Blue Rose – April 23
The Blue Rose is a Movement A closed Blue Rose is a Victim, Struggling to be free An open Blue Rose is a survivor who has found their voice. We are survivors and supporters who heal through our art.
Every Sunday for more than 19 years, poets and musicians have gathered for the poetry jam at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The poets preach, teach, cry, pray, confess, inspire, slay demons and speak in tongues, with the Jeff Robinson Trio providing improvised musical accompaniment. The tracks on this CD capture some of the best of these performances.
"I am certain that anyone who lends a patient ear to this CD will be enriched, informed and inspired." Abiodun Oyewole, Member of “The Last Poets”
