The “jazz and poetry” combination was a short-lived phenomenon in the late 1950s which originated in the Bay area. Leonard Feather had this interesting idea of recording with Langston Hughes. Langston Hughes' works had a direct relationship with blues and jazz. The record comprised of two groups: a “traditional” ensemble which included trumpeter Red Allen, trombonist Vic Dickenson, and others; the other group was led by pianist Horace Parian and Jimmy Knepper.
