A poem tells of the beauty and importance of jazz
"Hymn to Jazz and the Like," by Eli Siegel, is a great poem! In it, Mr. Siegel shows the grandeur of jazz, relating it to other kinds of music, to sound itself, and to some of the most important poetry of the world. Anyone who loves jazz, as I do, can appreciate this music more--and value our own care for it more--through this poem.
