From the Back Cover
"A Brand New Beggar is all about what and how it is to be open, in the field, to things that are all but imperceptibly piercing--the stuff that awakens us in passing, guiding our passage from overhearing to deep listening. A.L. Nielsen moves through "bursts of land" in tonebursts, like George Lewis's solo trombone, which can't keep itself from laughing and crying. His seriality is complicated and full and beautiful; his train is different; he "trains us to read that lost phrase," which is poetry's currency, the wealth that derives from a poverty in spirit that, happily, we can learn to share, as the always brand new thing." Fred Moten
