Jane Spokenword and Albey onBass…present Word Jamin’ Live
There is a space and place in time that connects us to a dimension that eclipses our fears…pure poetic soul.

4 poets 2 basses…no time limit…poets trading bars.

Albey ‘onBass’ Balgochian’s roots run the full spectrum of music genres, from the house bassist for the original “House of Blues” in Cambridge, MA., and a longtime member of Paul Rishell Band (2 time Handy Award winner) to the Cecil Taylor Trio & Big Band (All About Jazz Best of ’05, ’09, ’16.)

A poet of the street Jane ‘SpokenWord’ Grenier’s notable performances and collaborations include; Avant-Garde Maestro Cecil Taylor (AAJ best of 2016,) Nuyorican Poet Miguel Algarin, Beat poet/political activist John Sinclair, and HipHop musician/producer DJ Nastee.
“Like those of the Jazz poets, the Beats, The Last Poets, Gil Scott-Heron and others Grenier’s poetry is accompanied by Albey’s moaning, groaning, and rumbling contrabass – adding double the gut-punch to her words.” Raoul Jazz daGama

ABOUT Word Jam’in
Word Jam’in is a space where 4 featured poets trade bars and share their love of poetry and the spoken word. It is not a competition; it is an inspiration. It is not a slam, there are no time restrictions…no pressure. No list as to who comes next, when the spirit moves you…it’s your turn.
