"Skulls Along the River"

Topics:

Quincy Troupe is the winner of two American Book Awards for Snake-back Solos and Miles: The Autobiography. He is also the recipient of a Peabody Award for the Miles Davis Radio Project and is the author of six internationally acclaimed volumes of poetry.

Listen to an exclusive MP3 recording of Troupe’s “Skulls Along the River.”

“Any piece of writing he touches becomes music. With an uncanny ear for the language, he combines mere words into phrases and paragraphs that sing the range of life’s raw emotions, from the elation of a Magic Johnson slam-dunk to the melancholy of a Miles Davis trumpet solo.” -Los Angeles Times
