Catalog Number: 20080725

Kansas City Star book critic and poet John Mark Eberhart's book, Broken Time, is named for the style of playing in which the rhythm section refuses to follow a measured beat, which becomes his metaphor for life.   The book focuses on all kinds of musicians and music—from blues, jazz, classical, to movie scores--and it has led the poet to a whole new relationship with his musician brother, Ken Eberhart.  In this recording made at the Writers Place in Kansas City, the Eberhart brothers perform together for the first time, as John Mark reads from his book and Ken plays the marimba and other instruments.
