Classical Jack: Chamber Music Which Inspired Kerouac and Music Inspired by Him

St John’s in the Village 218 W 11th St, New York, NY

Musically as important as Beethoven,
Yet not regarded as such at all

So wrote Jack Kerouac in the 240th Chorus of Mexico City Blues, speaking of Charlie “Bird” Parker, whom he regarded as the perfect musician. But Jack’s love of jazz did not diminish his great love for classical music and his knowledge of it. His innate musicianship, of course explains the music of his prose, and his ability to improvise words to music, as he did with his old friend David Amram.
