So wrote Jack Kerouac in the 240th Chorus of Mexico City Blues, speaking of Charlie “Bird” Parker, whom he regarded as the perfect musician. But Jack’s love of jazz did not diminish his great love for classical music and his knowledge of it. His innate musicianship, of course explains the music of his prose, and his ability to improvise words to music, as he did with his old friend David Amram.
As part of Jack Kerouac 100, David gathers long-time friends – top-flight classical musicians with whom he has long worked and all of whom have played at Village Trip’s in the past – for an afternoon of music that inspired the great novelist, and in turn inspires us. Works by J S Bach, Claude Debussy and Erik Satie – and by David himself, including a new composition commissioned to mark the centennial which receives its premiere at The Village Trip.
