Jayne Cortez

women in (e)motion: Jayne Cortez - 1994

Combining her poems with jazz is something that just seems natural to Jayne Cortez who makes her home in New York. Though she is first and foremost a political poet, that means the message is central, her style of recitation has a musical rhythm, is percussive and at times boarders on vocal improvisation. She was accompanied by the Ornette Coleman Band at her 1992 performance in Bremen.
