songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …
we real cool

We real cool. We / Left school. We / Lurk late. We / Strike straight. We / Sing sin. We / Thin gin. We / Jazz June. We / Die soon. (Omer Avital, poem by Gwendolyn Brooks)

liberate the dissonance without killing the blues

Invent, experiment — Jazz / that doesn’t swing but dances tight (Omer Avital, poem by John Keene)

wood heavy with tenderness

Hyperbolic bass line. Oh, no! / Hard love, it’s hard love (Omer Avital, poem by Yusef Komunyakaa)
