To breathe into another voice : a South African anthology of jazz poetry( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Writing about jazz is like dancing about architecture, ' observed TheloniousMonk. It's possibly one of the few times he was wrong. Jazz poetry is almostas old as jazz itself. Poets such as Thulani Davis, Langston Hughes and ourown Keorapetse Kgositsile and Mongane Wally Serote have long heard thepatterns of the music and its makers and transformed and re-enacted thosepatterns in compelling words. Given South Africa's venerable jazz tradition, it's perhaps surprising it's taken so long for more fundis to be tapped fortheir responses to our kind of jazz. But it takes a special brew of ingredientsfor this kind of book to come together. You need an inspired guiding spirit, such as editor and jazzwoman-in-words Myesha Jenkins, and you need avat in which the ingredients can mix and bubble. That's been provided byall those who've opened stages for the music to happen, and most recentlyby the Orbit under the direction of Aymeric Peguillan where Jazz & PoetryNights brought words and music together, each a kind of yeast that helpedthe other to ferment and rise. You'll find everything here in To breatheinto another voice: faithful and fantastical accounts of the jazz life and jazzpeople as well as reflections on the music as a metaphor for how we live -- or, maybe more importantly, how we'd like to live. All you need to do nowis open the covers, start reading, and dance joyously about the architecture. GWEN ANSEL

The present is a dangerous place to live by Keorapetse Kgositsile( Book )

5 editions published between 1974 and 1993 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Kgositsile's poetry, you hear ... the voice of the African priest speaking directly to your soul. His vision is shot through with the fundamental, whether he is talking about ancestral things or contemporary nerve failures and self-betrayals. ... Kgositsile is about the fertility rites by which life is made rich or by which we betray, if we are merely going through zombie motions.--Introduction

His writings spanning decades are testament to the power of putting pen to paper and speaking the truth with forceful and eminently readable moral conviction.Letters to my Comrades is the ultimate collection of his piercing and yet embraceable thoughts and inquiries.This treasure trove of the writings of Jordan could not have been more timely in this critical – or should we say unfortunate – period of the promise that was the New Democratic Republic of South Africa, and published as it is on the eve of the African National Congress's general elective congress in December 2017, and interestingly in the aftermath of the watershed municipal elections of3 August 2016."--
