In this edition of Pulling Focus we continue our celebration of National Poetry Month but this time adding jazz to the mix with some seminal jazz soundtracks from film noir to the French new wave in recognition of Jazz Appreciation Month in Philadelphia. Also featured is a conversation with poet Beth Feldman Brandt who was commissioned by the Philadelphia Jazz Project to adapt her poems to the stage and combine them with jazz in the work Retro Love.
