THE FINAL NITE chronicles, in verse, nearly two decades of work written while listening to live performances (studio dates included) by the extraordinary musician Charles Gayle. Including every poem written under these circumstances, the poems are for the most part spontaneous compositions that reflect, respond to, or incorporate elements of Gayles music as well as his speeches and sermons and often relate, in an open field manner, to the actual physical environment where the music occurred. Dalachinsky writes free jazz. He lives the music, and his poems capture its heat and illumination--Francis Davis. Steve Dalachinsky is a poet of the real world in a time when reality is despised, dismissed, not understood or lied about--Amiri Baraka.
