Poems for New Orleans
Ed Sanders, counter-culture icon, and co-founder of the legendary group The Fugs, has created an epic poem cycle dedicated to the city of New Orleans. Tracing the history of a fictional family from The Battle Of New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina, Ed has created a brilliant work which captures the tremendous loss and indomitable hopes found in this most unique of American cities. Ed joins forces with Mark Bingham, a premier composer and musician based in New Orleans, who has assembled a large cast of A-list Crescent-City All-Stars to create a truly moving and deeply felt tribute. Named Best Poetry CD of 2007 by Bob Holman of About.com, Poems For New Orleans is a must-have WordJazz recording.
