When Langston Hughes wrote the kaleidoscopic jazz poem “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz,” he scored it with musical cues; this creative masterwork was left unperformed at the time of his death in 1967. Now, a multimedia concert performance brings to life this funny, demanding, fantastical, political, genre-bending poem, complete with visuals, spoken word, and jazz accompaniment. Created and performed by Dr. Ron McCurdy and his inspired quartet.
