Author of the lyrics to Sun Ra’s composition “Love in Outer Space,” he has also recorded with the saxophonists and composers Ornette Coleman and David Murray and the cornetist and composer Butch Morris. He is the author of ’Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky: Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child (2009), and wrote and produced an award-winning two-hour documentary on the African American beat poet Bob Kaufman for National Public Radio and the Pacifica Foundation.

Most recently he became the first fellow of the Lost and Found, the CUNY Poetics Document Initiative at the Center for the Humanities.  Kingfish, My Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish Kingfish, my Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish, in the darkness of the country, slight smile around his perpendicular cigar. Brown face lost in the darkness, dark pants fading into the black, the white apron an apparition, a ghost of service: soda and potato chips for the boy, a swab of white cloth across  the hardwood hull of the bar that was indeed at sea for that voyage of the day to night to end in the death of dawn. Beer chasers after the Tanqueray argument, the jukebox so loud the room is bouncing, in the window screeching tires of 450 horsepowers burning eight cylinders of rubber, the smell drifts in and outside the door, becomes a smoke cloud rambling down main street. Let the good times roll for the sixty minute man, lovers too young to be in love -- Afro Mona Lisa laughing out loud all up in your face. Andrei Codrescu was born in Sibiu, Romania. He has written poetry, novels, essays, and film. He won the Peabody Award and was a National Book Award finalist for poetry. From 1983 to 1996 he edited the multivolume publication Exquisite Corpse: A Journal of Books and Ideas, and he started to edit the ongoing website Exquisite Corpse: A Journal of Life and Letters in 1996. He taught poetry and comparative literature at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Baltimore, and Louisiana State University, where he retired in 2010 as MacCurdy Professor Emeritus. His recent books include Bibliodeath: My Archives (with Life in Footnotes) (2012) and The Art of Forgetting: New Poems (2016). Codrescu was also a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered from 1983 to 2016. the new golden wretched Google-worthy immigrants are to be foundsay the fat natives wrapped in fur & fearin the 1938-1948 wave and the post-commieera 1989-2001 when politics was clear after that as Gogol Bordello sings"we are coming rougher" we walk on desert rocks   come out of tunnelswe left our kin in a storm of shards barrel bombs that tore up legs eyes arms hair   a rain of meat that we once called "love"now mud air mushrooms roots grubsthose refugees of two decades agowho came under the umbrella of idealismby boat and plane and real politikdo not want us   they have forgotten "we come rougher"unwanted    parcelled out like fuel for the enginesof power's calculated mercybut "rough" is just another texture of despair whether it's 1941, 2015 or sometime imminent       and new history doesn't take vacationsit only stops to take a breath to changebibs continents and menus before it eats again     Dia:Chelsea FALSE DD/MM/YYYY FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=SA;UNTIL=20260801T235900; David Henderson and Andrei Codrescu
