Lu Evers & Friends: Extremism

Longtime avant garde jazz conceptualist Lu Evers branches out into word art, presenting a performance piece centered around a poetry reading format. The willowy and stoic Jo Anderson is featured as the reader on several pieces, with Keith Eisenbrey performing piano support composed by Evers, who also picks up the clarinet here and there, and presents the pieces he reads with a variety of characters. Humor, incisive criticism, surreal imagery and dark drama etch the landscape in this engaging new work.
