SOMOS, the Taos Jazz Bebop Society and the Harwood Museum present poet Jamaal May

Arthur Bell Auditorium


Poet Jamaal May will be accompanied by the John Rangel trio, a group of jazz musicians. May is the author of Hum (2013) and The Big Book of Exit Strategies (2016). His first collection received a Lannan Foundation Grant, an ALA Notable Book Award and was named a finalist for the Tufts Discovery Award and an NAACP Image Award. His poetry explores the tension between opposites to render a sonically rich argument for the interconnectivity of people, worlds, and ideas. John Rangel is a dynamic composer and Jazz Pianist. He has been a professional musician for over twenty years. His trio typically includes a bass player and percussionist.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $16 for Museum, SOMOS and TJBBS members.
