FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jessica Tarahata Hagedorn’s work was first heralded by Kenneth Rexroth in the now well-known McGraw-Hill book, FOUR YOUNG WOMEN: POEMS. Her childhood in the Philippines and addiction to popular rock ‘n roll and black soul music made for the tense lyric beauty in poems about her ambiguous arrival and coming of age in America. DANGEROUS MUSIC moves back and forth between the Philippines, San Francisco and New York. It, too, is a celebration of music, this time Latin soul and avantgarde jazz as a way into the exploration of ancestral roots, love, mysticism, sex & drugs. The Blossoming of Bong Bong, the one story in the book, is the tragi-comic adventure of a young man who comes from Manila to San Francisco and finds himself totally unable to relate to the culture, but becomes mystically addicted to one very specific attraction. Jessica continues to live in San Francisco. She is writing a novel, PET FOOD, and working with her new band, The West Coast Gangster Choir. The band, developed in collaboration with the trombonist and composer Julian Priester (formerly of the Herbie Hancock Organization), specializes in a highly urban, rhythmic synthesis of poetry and sound.
