From the mouth of Bill:
“This Thursday, May 20th I will be sharing an evening of excerpts form the writing of poets, playwrights, authors and historical figures with Michael Hecht. These will include Helen Keller, Arthur Miller, Eric Maria Ramarque, Lucy Atkins, Yusef Kamuryakaa, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Dalton Trumbo, Martin Luther King Richard Harrison, Paul Laurence Dunbar and Langston Hughes.
This will be at least the 7th time we have worked together with me supplying songs spaced between the writing he has organized and reads from. I have never had a better collaboration in which to place songs, which in this case are all my own writings. It is not to presume that I am equating my own lyrics with any of these writers, but allows me to visit the type of writing that has inspired and informed me through out my 74 years ( minus the first 7 or so). Most of Mr. Hecht’s choices were specifically unknown to me so I am in the audience too. As I listen I find a comfortability in performing that I have seldom had. It feels so right.
It runs about 75 minutes and will transmit on the Cafe Carpe YouTube channel. Also will be available on YouTube for some time after. It is such a pleasure to sing in the context of the written word.
