this morning Around the world with Henry Jacobs.Absurd folklorist Henry Jacobs returns with a selection of rare interviews, odd loops, sales pitches, early synthesizer demos from the 50s and 60s supplemented with some new improvisations.It Is a New CD On Important Records. Most recordings have been done with our favourite instrument the Reel to reel tape recorder.

Henry Jacobs says about the CD recordings, “the recordings presented here were  selected from a collection I abandoned 40 years ago underneath my home in Mill Valley California. It appears their unearthing provided enough mayhem for yet another visit to the castaway archive. To spice up the stew I added a fee new works to this mix.

The bonus disc features Kenneth Rexroth and Lawrence Ferlinghetti reading works I recorded on the first night of a poetry/jazz series held at the cellar in San Francisco’s North Beach during the month of February 1957.” It was the first time these beat poets had read to jazz music.
