Thank you for sharing, everyone. <3

I remember when we were creating his book he was sending me all sorts of things in the mail. The CD's are wonderful. I didn't even know he had any made.

Dan Kozak Jazz, TheBiography
( Photo by Jeff Davis )

Dan Kozak came to being into he enchanted land known as Brooklyn, New York way back in the 1950's. In his mid-teens he became an obsessive collector of all sorts of musical recordings. At age 15, he fell prey to the works of John Coltrane, & jazz then became the centerpiece of his musical addiction.

In 1971, for reasons no one can recall, Dan fond himself in Kansas. On a lark, Dan decided to check out the instrument of his idol, & rented a tenor sax. He took to it rather quickly, & with a vast music collection at his disposal, developed a deeper passion for the heritage of jazz. Dan strives to convey the love & passion for this music at every performance.

In 1991, he decided to take things into his own hands, & began leading groups made up of many fine players from Topeka & Lawrence.

In 1996, Dan founded, produced, directed & performed the annual Coleman Hawkins Neighborhood Festival, Twice-annual Jazz at Grace Concert Series, Spirit of Jazz Concert Series as well as produced-hosted The Jazz Show on KDVV-FM until 1996. He also produced-hosted Classics on Oldies 102.9 FM until 1999. He also loved producing & directing the music for the Kansas River Valley Art Fair between 1997 - 1999.

By May/June 2001, Dan released two CD's: TAO & GRACE ( Earthstar Recordings ) and HANDMADE TOPEKA ( Tradepost label ).

He was such an integral part of the arts and the former as well as current musicians he touched are paying wonderful homages.

You can find some of Dan's compositions on Youtube:

Dan crawled into DUP December 10, 2011 - making him a true Legend of the Underworld. He graced us with his own unique style of poetry which will forever go unmatched in wit, form, and content. He was truly a master of neologism.

Cradled

When I lay upon my deathbed
And ponder all the words left to ears unsaid   †
To the world I give of my beautiful musings, read upon the scrolls of my creed † †
To give honor in its reprimand for those who refused to see † †
Inhaling the air my Creator has anointed † †
To the souls who Iíve witnessed desecrate in such a disappointment † †  
† †  
Did I give to the less fortunate who stood with their hand out in the pouring rain † †
With words of encouragement to heal their pain † †
Offered the shoes from off me feet † †
To give to strangers for the progression of their footsteps upon our departing meet † †
† †  
Were my arms always receptive, huggable as they remained open † †
To give unconditional love when minds deny the existence of their soul to become awoken † †
Did my skin color elevate in the wake of earthly chaos † †  
When hatred, bigotry, and racial diversity politically tossed † †
Lives lost, did I demand change at all cost † †
† †  
Did my eyes see manís technology as a weaponry few would never understand † †
Was my voice heard in union to love one another echoed across the great lands † †
My heart, was it always in the right place † †
To accept humanity no matter the gender or race † †
Did I sing to the children with melodies of kindness, respect, giving them a sense of hope † †
Prepare their intellect for life, give them aspirations for their dreams to promote † †
† †  
Was my Temple of purity governed in its truest state † †
An example of unselfishness to surrender in love when it came for me to procreate † †  
The rules of forgiveness and its principles, was I a law-abiding citizen † †
Listen to the sermons of Theology to forsake the temptation of sins time and time again † †
I looked down at my trembling hands, my breathing has become shallow and labored † †
Until the cradle of my coffin I shall now rest like a sleeping baby in a manger † †  
† †  
To my eyes I look up prepared, I can clearly see that beaming light, as I come to understand † †
The energy is not in the tongue to speak iniquity, but to love like the flow of timeless sand † †
In remembrance to look back and ask of yourself was I this woman or man † †
I can now close my eyes in reverent peace, cry for me no more as tears come to silently weep † †
My earthly vessel shall lay in wake, reprieved † †  
As the spirit of my soul has now been divinely received † †
† †  
In humble dedication to a DUP poet who has received his beautiful wings, RIP (dkzksaxxas_DanielX)

[ DUP ] Bend it like Kozak

---break Poe'treed rules  
as if o'pined limbs  

as if your Mother's back  

( but not your Dada's - him's  
been ruled an exception, being †
the most exceptional of fools ) †

by stomping on every sidewalk  
crack Crack CRACK  
not a'bothered with keeping track  
of duh merits †

you †

rack  

up  

yourself  

on a bicycle rack  
because you were too †
busy having a ball [ or two ]  
now turned black and blue

Teach

us to love and laugh
while we breathe;
 
teach us tradition
and appreciation;
 
teach us to cook  
clean, and save;
 
teach us to extend  
mercy and grace;  
 
teach us to say no
to what we do not need;
 
teach us to accept  
death as a beginning;
 
teach us to say goodbye  
and carry on living
~

NOW'EVER ENOUGH

 

  † † † † † † † † † † †Dire Henry †
 † † † † †hammers † † † † † † † † everything north or
south
or east of west............the clink/clang
heard hours away
 † † † † † † † †portraying the dominance of
 † † † †man
over god † † † † † † † †just as she/he and every
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †thing.

Forget god. Yes forget.
make'up a little dance of your own.
For whatever it's worth.
Like the Centennial of the Sandohog's labors
 † † † † † † † bringing billions'o gallons
 † † † † † † † of crisp waters to suffering NYC,
 † † † † †(Crown Jewel of the Hemispheric North.

And the labor's labor on and on,
the tricks as visible as the trash site
 † † † † † † † † † † † †of the local trashing.

There's no relative truth that goes wit
 † † † this hunger, but the dance may be
 † † † †an able posture of
 † † † † † † † † † † † † possession, of
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † potential , of
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †the process of
of seeing the relative of a †blessed, wholly invaluable ,
 † † † † † † state of stillness , taking it's time,
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †as is fulfilling, knowing
 † † † † † † † †knowing the constancy on poeting
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † †the state of this overwhelmed mind,
 † † † † † † settling for the action of no more,
 † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † for now'ever.
