Poetry. ASK ANYONE is the record, think disk, of Ruth Lepson's encounters with some of the musicians she has taught at Boston's New England Conservatory of Music. For twenty years, she has worked in a world where words meet music and the results lead, often as not, to performance. At the Conservatory she befriended her colleague, the great soprano saxophonist and lover of poetry, Steve Lacy who long collaborated with her poet-hero Robert Creeley. Creeley is ASK ANYONE's guiding spirit, but the book's looseness, stretching out and swing is all Lepson. In ASK ANYONE Lepson honors her lineage by bringing it into the here and now. Lend an ear.
Ruth Lepson lives and writes in Cambridge, Mass. She has been poet-in-residence at the New England Conservatory.Author City: CAMBRIDGE, MA USA
