Poetry and Jazz Layer Cake at the Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street, Brighton


Thursday 25 May 2017 at 8.15pm
Featuring the writer John Harvey

and the John Lake Band

A delicious serving of modern jazz and poetry created by the award winning author (best-selling Charlie Resnick series). A layer cake of John Lake's original jazz will be followed by a poetry “jam” in the middle from John Harvey's published works - at times the two intermingle to form a mouth-watering combination.
