ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kevin Rabas, leader of the KC jazz poetry group Lucky, releases his first album *Last Road Trip*--a live studio session of poetry & jazz, accompanied by saxophonist Josh Sclar.

"Rabas and Sclar play out 23 original tracks full of well-crafted, passionate, salt-of-the-earth verse complimented by monstrous, melodical, improvisatory sax work."
--Singer/songwriter Joe Parrish

An excerpt:

*Last Road Trip*
Traveling westbound
somewhere between Leoti and Limon
on the Kansas/Colorado border,
my wife opens the window
and tosses a ceramic pitcher
into the wind,

Which bounces five times
before it shatters
in the breakdown lane.

"I'm tired of flawed art," she says.
"Nothing cracked stays."

Her hands have hardened
into two smooth river stones,
so the clay must flow
over her.
