"Lost & Found: Cassandra Cleghorn on Kenneth Patchen's Jazz Collaborations"
"The Murder of Two Men by a Young Kid Wearing Lemon-colored Gloves” is to my mind one of the few instances of music and poetry perfectly integrated—by which I mean that in this piece, poem and music are maximally in contact, both with and against one another. This collaboration between Patchen and composer and band leader Allyn Ferguson is a revelation, anticipating Robert Creeley’s interplay with bassist Steve Swallow almost 50 years later. But where Creeley’s pre-recorded poems were digitally retrofitted into Swallow’s soundtrack, Patchen performed his poems live and in the studio with horns blazing. Listening to this deep cut is for me a continuous shock and thrill--a reminder of what’s possible when poets close their eyes and keep their ears wide open.
