Poet, essayist, translator, teacher and speaker, Robert Pinsky, served three terms as United States Poet Laureate and has been dedicated to identifying and invigorating poetry’s place in the world. He is the author of nineteen books, mostly collections of his poetry, which have been highly praised and recognized. He often performs his poems with jazz musicians and has produced two CDs, POEMJAZZ and POEMJAZZ II: House Hour, with Grammy-winning pianist Laurence Hobgood. POEMJAZZ intertwines language and music in an innovative dialogue between poetry and music, which emphasizes the melodic qualities of voice and highlights the way jazz improvisation can sometimes seem to speak.
