READINGS BY JACK KEROUAC ON THE BEAT GENERATION
Original Year 1997
Readings by Jack Kerouac on the Beat Generation was the culmination of the author's short-lived recording career, a solo performance that transcends poetry and music -- it's literally spoken jazz, the artist improvising freely on the printed text of his own work in front of him. Produced by Bill Randle, it was Kerouac's most musical performance, despite the fact that the recording contained only his voice and no accompaniment, using his voice and language the way a saxophonist might improvise on a particular melodic line or riff. He's spellbinding throughout, intense, focused, and even subtly changing voices with the work itself.
Readings by Jack Kerouac on the Beat Generation was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Recording Package.
