T Gordon Leigh of the Naked Ear recites poetry at Jazzerwocky, Oct. 20. Photo by Richard AmeryI love to see a new band playing something different.
 In this case it was a mind bending melding of jazz and poety–old school beatnik style with T Gordon Leigh and the Naked Ear who marked the return of Jazzerwocky at the Slice, Oct. 20.

 T Gordon Leigh played French horn and delivered his own  poetry in a Leonard Cohen style baritone.

 His crack backing band including James Oldenburg, stand up bassist Paul Holden, drummer Matt Lipinski and percussionist Atty Charles delivered the goods musically, with Oldenburg adding a touch of Santana to the proceedings.

They were also backing poet John Lent, who was performng  as part of the event, which was sponsored by the Most Vocal Poets.
