Album Notes
“Golda Solomon…spins words into whole notes that crescendo with luscious clarity in the tenor of my head…she is riffing with language fused in memory” – Regie Cabico, co-editor of Poetry Nation. “Poet Solomon…Think of it as Jack Kerouac revisiting the Mile High City and grabbing a sandwich at a New York deli while in town”. Norman Provizer, Jazz Critic, Rocky Mountain News.

GOLDA SOLOMON—producer, performer, educator—is poet and an associate professor of communications and poetry; a supporter of Jazz and women musicians as well as emerging musicians and poets. She is the founder in 1992 and project director of Po’Jazz, (in residence at The Hudson Valley Writers’ Center in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. 1999-2002), now a one-of-a-kind monthly jazz and poetry series at The Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village. In 1999, Po’Jazz was selected to be part of the promotion in the official I Love New York advertising campaign.

Golda also co-founded the brooklyn poetry choir, and has pioneered several unique businesses including From Page to Performance (Po’Jazz Workshops), plus JazzJaunts, a personalized jazz docent service based in NYC. And with voicist Barbara Sfraga, ICAAN (Interactive Communication and Arts Network), which provides innovative, on-site, specific arts programming to workplaces, schools, and other organizations

She has performed in the Denver, Colorado area in 2004 & 05 at the Curtis Arts Center at Dazzle, the top Jazz club in Denver, and the Commiunity College of Aurora. She has also appeared at The Word Festival, Great Women in Music Festival, Mamapalooza Festivals, Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival, Madam X NYC, and at the IAJE Convention in L.A.

Golda has been involved in other Jazz collaborations, such as Women in Jazz, Jazz at the Triplex (now the Tribeca Performing Arts Center), the “Lost Shrines” Jazz Series (CUNY). She has organized and developed women’s leadership projects, as well as Special Need Student services, and is the recipient of a number of collegiate achievement awards.
