I Hear America Singing: Walt Whitman and the Great American Songbook

Spoken word entertainer Kirpal Gordon and his Speak-Spake-Spoke Septet present an evening of Walt Whitman’s poetry performed to musical compositions of the Great American Songbook. Gordon and his band weave familiar and timeless standards that fit Whitman’s King James rhythms and expand their meaning. Musicians include Arthur Kell, bass; Todd Bashore, alto saxophone; Claire Daly, baritone saxophone; Carlton Holmes, piano; Amanda Monaco, guitar; and Warren Smith, percussion. Hofstra students and other special guests present readings of Whitman’s poetry.
