Both LEE AARON and RALPH will be sharing a core group of musicians 
comprised of; Jane Milliken (keyboards), Lee's musical director and
     CD co-producer - Ms. Milliken has played with Amy Sky, Holly Cole,
Parachute Club, Headpins, Hugh Marsh and others; Graham Howell (sax),
     a member of both RALPH and the LEE AARON group, in addition to duties
with Powder Blues; and John Cody (drums), a prolific musician who's
     played with Bo Diddley, Ray Condo, and many more - Cody's tales of 
touring Canada in the 70's are featured in Dave Bidini's book, "On A
     Cold Road". John also writes for the American music magazine, Goldmine.
A RALPH show is a fun evening of spoken word, Beat sensibility, cool jazz, 
and my belief that poetry can be presented as part of a popular culture mix 
that is positive and universal. The original notion of what Kerouac called 
"Beatitude" was a celebration of life, discovery, experience and goodness 
in your heart. It's a very key ingredient that's been overlooked by popular 
stereotyping. Poetry is not negative and if my kind of Beatnik LiteŠ can 
make people give it another chance, then that's great!"
