Poetry and Jazz During the Petaluma Poetry Walk

SOURCE: Published:
Martha Cinader Mims The Petaluma Poetry Walk is an annual event in its 13th year. This year it will take place on September 21 from 10am-7pm. Each hour there is a different stop along the walk in downtown Petaluma, and a poetry reading. The Poet Laureate of California, Al Young, is scheduled to read at 3pm. At 4pm at the Phoenix Theatre, Martha and Tony Mims, of Listen & Be Heard fame, will be the featured act, accompanied by Paul Neal on upright bass and Carltrent, on percussion.

While Listen & Be Heard Poetry Cafe was open in downtown Vallejo, this same group performed a set together every night at 8pm. What takes place is improvisational poetry and jazz, poetic symmetry, jazzoetry, the wedding of words and sounds.
