The word/jazz performance series and Jazz Outside! presents collaborative spoken word and improvised music performances that feature an ever evolving all-star cast of Austin’s best performance poets, musicians, and writers who create live-on-the-spot spontaneous compositions.These are decidedly not "poetry readings."
Now one of Austin’s longest lived spoken word and music projects (since 2000), word/jazz creates a comfortable setting for exploration of how traditional call-and-response can be adapted to performance situations where artists are free to improvise based on real time inspiration of the moment.
