New Day Jazz

Justin Desmangles

Joining me this afternoon, in the 5 o'clock hour (Pacific time), poet, scholar, critic, Aldon Lynn Nielson. A pre-eminent voice in the interpretation and analysis of African-American literary tradition, Nielson is, without question, one of the most rigorous and inventive authors in history to take on this complex and diverse subject. Among his many books are, Black Chant: Languages of African-American PostmodernismIntegral Music: Languages of African-American Innovation, and his most recent collection of poems, A Brand New Beggar, which we will be discussing today on New Day Jazz. Nielson blogs on the internet at Heat String Theory
