The Urban Poetry Suite was written in the Spring of2015. I was inspired to write this pieceafter passing by the Mission Street Bart Station in San Francisco one Fridayevening, when I witnessed a group of young men and women jamming poetry adlib.  I was absolutely captivated by thetheir energy, sincerity, and most importantly, this overwhelming sense ofuninhibited freedom.  The entire piececonsists of 5 mvmts, each assumes a different poetic image: 1) Freeflow 2)Ballade 3) Slam 4) Sonnet 5) Rap. 

The 3rd mvmt has two versions: one with completewritten out notes; the other with an improvisation section towards theend.  The players are encouraged to jamwith each other using the pitch set that the entire mvmt is built on.  After all, free association from a givenmotive is the whole idea of poetry slam. Just have fun with it!
