The musical duo of John Lent and Mark Nishihara join with author Tom Wayman in a presentation that celebrates the interconnectedness of the literary and musical arts. Their performance was originally developed in support of Wayman’s 2017 collection of poems about music, Helpless Angels. That volume, among its other concerns, muses on Wayman’s generation being the first in human history to be able to listen to any music they want, any time they want, any place they want. Lent and Nishihara recap some songs important to that generation, as well as the best of Lent’s own tunes from his start as a performer to the 21st Century
