Recommended by Rich Smith

Most fusions of music and poetry are, um, bad. Especially when they involve a jazz flute. But this ensemble of writerly musicians is an exception, mostly because it includes the poet Gary Copeland Lilley. Lilley plays a fine blues guitar and writes incredibly vivid narrative poetry so rhythmic, you can tap your foot to it. Kim Addonizio, a conversational poet who writes a lot of good poems about sex and the body, leads the band on vox, blues harmonica, and jazz flute. Crack Seattle journalist and novelist Kristen Millares Young will add her considerable vocal talents, along with Spokane novelist Sam Ligon on guitar and Kate Lebo on cowbell.
