WORLD PACIFIC records issued JAZZ CANTO Vol.1 WP-1244 (1958) JAZZ CANTO Vol.1, reissued
it on WP-1409 (1961) as POETRY & JAZZ (Jazz Canto). The UK Cherry Red company has
reissued the album on CD on their RIGHTEOUS label.

readers: John Carradine, Hoagy Carmichael, Ben Wright, Roy Glenn, Bob Durough.
Poetry by Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Philip Whalen, Lawrence Lipton, Dylan Thomas, Lawrence Ferlinghetti
and William Carlos Williams.
Curiously, on the LP reissue jacket cover they mis-spell DUROUGH, but not on the liner.
QUESTION: The initial release indicates VOL 1 - they must have planned to issue more. Was
material for subsequent issue RECORDED??? Anyone know what was included, or planned ???
Best wishes, Thomas.
