ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Poets, Philosophers, Workers, and Wanderers – is Jencks’ 10th solo CD. While honoring his friend and mentor Pete Seeger with the title track, this collection of songs spans a wide range of human experiences from love and triumph, to tragedy and transformation. With arrangements that showcase exquisite acoustic performances alongside Aaron Copeland-like orchestral tapestries, this recording reflects both the depth of Joe’s musical knowledge and his diversity of influences.

Featuring ten richly crafted original songs encompassing Celtic, Blues, Jazz and traditional Folk styles - with a handful of carefully chosen covers, Poets, Philosophers, Workers & Wanderers is cinematic in its imagery and scope. In addition to Joe’s signature vocals and unique instrumental styles, guest artists include: Ysaye Barnwell (Sweet Honey In The Rock), Cathy Fink, Harpeth Rising, Tret Fure, Reggie Harris, Edie Carey, Jon Carroll, Grace Jencks, and many more.
