Written following the death (1986)of Benny Goodman, and celebrating the 30th anniversary of the publication of Allen Ginsberg's iconic beat classic "HOWL", this 'strange bedfellows' piece fuses two disparate sources into a reverse musical journey. Beginning stylistically in the 1980's, the piece gradually moves back in time thru a smokey 1950's/60's beatnik coffee house, and ends in a 1940's Greenwich Village bebop frenzy ... bis bis.
