Choo Choo Anoo (Jazz and Spoken Word)
If you have a poem to recite or a story to tell, a piece you wrote or written by someone else, or something that you create entirely in the moment, we have the place for you to come share in the company of CHoo CHoo ANoo + you; a jazz and spoken word show hosted by local musician/pianist Alison Weiner.
CCA is a jazz collective offering interpretations of classic standards and improvised accompaniment for your spoken word sharings. Joining Alison for the group’s return engagement will be Jeff Brown on saxes, Ben Palmer on bass, Jim Roberts on percussion, and special guest Greensboro native, New Orleans drummer and Charlie Hunter sideman, Geoff Clapp! Emceeing the show, welcoming all those who want to share is poet/minister/activist Gary Phillips.
