Henry Jacobs

Around The World With Henry Jacobs


IMPREC299   CD X2


Absurd folklorist Henry Jacobs returns with a selection of rare interviews, odd loops, sales pitches, early
synthesizer demos, an ether-infused evening, and more! Produced in San Francisco and New York City, Around The World With Henry Jacobs is a travelogue that continues the story begun with The Wide Weird World of Henry Jacobs, mixing archival material from the 1950s with recent improvisations by Jacobs. Guests include Stan Freberg and Dr. Irwin Corey, with Alan Watts returning for a visit, too.

Also included is special bonus disc — First Night, one of the true gems from the collection. Recorded in
February 1957 by Henry Jacobs on the opening night of the Poetry/Jazz Series at The Cellar in San Francisco,
this unique document captures the first time Kenneth Rexroth and Lawrence Ferlinghetti read their poetry to
jazz in this very intimate setting. In contrast to Fantasy Records' Poetry Readings in the Cellar, you feel
yourself a part of the audience here, moments punctuated with a register ringing, muted conversations, laughter, and clinking glasses. Includes Rexroth reading "Between Myself And Death" and "She Is Away", and Ferlinghetti reading "The World is A Beautiful Place."
