Aidan Baker’s book of poetry Passing Through (Wounded Wolf Press) has been officially released now and is available from the Broken Spine Webshop. For a limited time, we are selling both Passing Through and Aidan’s previous book of poetry, The Shape of Snakes, as a discounted package deal.
We previously posted a printed and an audio sample from the collection here, but here is Aidan’s audio interpretation of the Scott LaFaro song “Jade Visions” (originally performed by The Bill Evans Trio), a song which he writes about in Passing Through:

Aidan Baker has a new book of poetry coming out in July with Wounded Wolf Press entitled Passing Through. The collection is made up of ‘synesthetic’ poems, writings about other media – films, paintings, songs – and is now available to pre-order directly from the publisher. Pre-orders come with a signed and numbered card and a digital print from Uğur Altun who provided also provided the cover and interior illustrations.
And here is a scan of the title poem from the collection, based on a work by the Canadian artist Betty Goodwin:
