Two of the most brilliant poets of the beat generation, Kenneth Patchen and Lawrence Ferlinghetti performing their compelling works in a Jazz context. This edition captures the movement in poetry toward all-inclusiveness, and a belief that the language and music of the street had their own beauty, integrity and significance, rooted as they were in the experience of ordinary people. Patchen is one the most important American writers of the 20th century and Ferlinghetti wrote Coney Island Of The Mind which sold a million copies. In terms of both attitude and style, Patchen and Ferlinghetti paved the way for Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison and Captain Beefheart. El. 2008.
