    Rick Fay once again combines his poetry with music in this sequel to Sax-o-Poem (19113), this time drawing portaits in words and music of some of his favorite jazz musicians. "In ˜Words Among the Reeds´ Rick Fay gives us poetic and musical portraits of himself and eleven of the jazz world´s brightest stars. Like ˜Sax-o-Poem´, its predecessor, this album rings true in both words and notes. Rick´s poems set up the musical performances that follow. Either could stand alone as the work of a gifted artist; together, the effect is synergistic. Who Am I? Rick asks in the opener. Rejoice in the creativity of his responses throughout this wonderful album. Owen Cordle, whose work appears regularly in JazzTimes, Down Beat and in the Raleigh (NC) News and Observer.
