The other day I was thinking about some projects that been in the back of my mind for a while and I thought about an off and on project to update a rap piece I had heard 30 or 40 years ago before rap became Rap. It’s a jazz poem by Gil Scott-Heron entitled “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.” At the time, it was performed in smokey jazz clubs, coffee houses and anywhere Scott-Heron could find people willing to listen. Wiki says it in detail here. The poem says a lot about society then and I think it can be made relevant for today. You can view my efforts at “The Revolution Will Not be Televised” and the annotated verse pages.
