Joe Somoza & the Other

Acquarium by Jill Somoza

Mark Weber has a nice article about Joe Somoza's poetry at the Metropolis Free Jazz Network site. After reading the article, scan on down for another of Jill's paintings, plus some poems and audio of Joe reading his work. Mark's article gave me the opportunity to blog up one of Jill's wonderful translucent paintings. I thought of the painting as "Blue Wings" but Jill said:
I called it "Aquarium" because I painted it after we came back from Chicago where we had walked around their great aquarium one whole afternoon and I loved being able to "walk under water" it seemed like. But actually, as usual, it didn't start out to be anything, it just became that.
Lee and I are fans.
