Go to it, O jazzmen!

I mentioned on Tuesday that Miss Priss was not impressed with Carl Sandburg's poetry thus far. I thought it might help for her to hear a recording of someone reading Jazz Fantasia. Below is a great reading from Alan Davis Drake:

Jazz Fantasia • Carl Sandburg from Alan Davis Drake on Vimeo.

It makes a difference, doesn't it, to hear this lively interpretation versus reading it aloud yourself. At least it does for me!


  1. Oh... it totally does!

    I have problems now with connecting with Riley, so I need to listen to some of the poems being read by famous people on youtube as it says in my compilation for Kindle.

    Some poems have been closer to home, but others have been totally difficult to understand and thus connect with.

    This is very nice. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Ellen, Happy new year to you and yours! What year of AO are you doing? :)

  3. I'm glad you liked it, too, Silvia!

    Sarah, happy new year to you, too! We are in term 2 of year 6. We've used AO since Year 1!


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
