Dear Charles,
Thank you--I have the book but was too lazy to use it and relied on my too 
often faulty memory! I should have added that Sascha Feinstein is the author 
of "Jazz Poetry: From the 1920s to the Present", and  co-author, with Yusef 
Komunyakaa, of  "The Jazz Poetry Anthology", and "The Second Set: The Jazz 
Poetry Anthology, Volume 2".  I could not have remembered the name of her 
co-author and would therefore have turned to their books for confirmation. 
No doubt I would have noted Feinstein's correct name too. I think I have it 
all OK this time, but...! With regards.
