Three words: jazz and poetry. Four words: free jazz and poetry. Many words: An Evening of Jazz with Walt Whitman and the Mystical Trumpeters. You dont have to say it. Just hush up and kick back for GableStages reading of the Jerry Marshall musical based on works by one of the most charismatic figures in American letters. (Did you know Whitman tended the wounded during the Civil War? We love that.) A reading of a musical, you say? Yes, ´tis odd. But when you combine the awesome talents of three jazz trumpeters, a pianist, a bassist, a drummer, and a singer, you have, words or no, music. The free performance is tonight at 7:30 at The Biltmore Hotel. Call 305-446-1116, or visit www.gablestage.org.
