SILVER WORLD WITH TWIN BLUE MOONS | CATHERINE LEE
Catherine A. Lee founded and ran for 13 years Studio Red Top, Inc., a loft space/nonprofit in Boston. There Lee began exploring poetry as a percussive voice with jazz musicians—including joint gigs with her mentor, Beat poet/hipster tedjoans in 1986-87—and produced concerts, jam sessions, and readings. “Jazz is my religion” ted spoke/sang his whole griot life and Lee is inspired to carry his legacy forward. Today, from San Antonio TX and Asheville NC, Lee writes, sits in “on poem” at jam sessions, reads at open poetry events & creates multimedia pieces archived on Soundcloud (http://soundcloud.com/jazz-cat-lee) and Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/jazzovation).
