“If jazz could be written down in words, then this is it! Spirited, insightful, spontaneous; yet so cleverly constructed that every phrase delights and intrigues, revealing both unexpected and familiar truths about music and life.” Sandy Evans
Sunday 12 February: Geoff will read from his recent collection of jazz poetry A Sudden Sentence In The Air, and collaborate with bass player Alex Boneham: together, musician and poet create a groove that evokes the jazz clubs of New York and Paris.
The launch at Wangaratta was fantastic! Geoff Page read from his collection of jazz poetry, accompanies by Alex Boneham on the bass. What a great way to launch a book of jazz poetry at the beginning of a jazz festival. Here are some pictures of the event.

Well, the second (and final) gig on our ‘We’re not dead yet’ tour was a resounding success. Sorry if you missed it, but I hope we’ll be doing more of this sort of event soon!
I’m calling this the ‘We’re not dead yet’ tour. Two gigs; one in Melbourne and one in Sydney. On Thursday 13 January a group of us gathered at the wonderful Collected Works bookshop in the Nicholas Building for a steamy evening of poetry.
After great feedback about the poetry in all five extempore issues… we figure the next best thing to a good poem in print is a poem being read – particularly when it’s in the convivial atmosphere of an independent bookshop with a glass of wine and great company.
