Fund drive, more celebration of Al Young Day. Jack’s premium is Jazz Idiom: Blueprints, Stills and Frames. The jazz photography of Charles L. Robinson joined with poetic takes and riffs by Al Young. A perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Al Young writes of Charles L. Robinson: “At a moment when public officials and agencies seem determined to make documentary photography all but illegal, a moment when the nanosecond (one-billionth of a second) has become standard time-measure on an unreflective planet wobbling toward self-destruction, what pleasure it gives me to gaze at and ponder Charles’ meaningful interactions with musicians whose work he admired, loved, or revered. Long on memory and bottomless on passion and concern, Charles Robinson is a treasure and a joy.” Al will read a wide selection of his poetry, including some of his fascinating early poetry—going back as far as 1959.
