Here, for the first time together, are the incarnations of the “Black Heaven Jazz” band. In this collection of works by Johnny D. Iles, we see the transformations of the “Black Heaven Jazz” characters from their earlier versions in the poem “D Minor” and the short story “Requiem for the Kid on Grand Piano,”to their final resting place on the stage in the play version of Requiem for the Kid on Grand Piano. Iles offers a torrid account of love and passion in his Darwinian tale of adapting and surviving – or dying – because of the inability to do such. But more than all of that, as the author suggests, “Requiem for the Kid on Grand Piano is the epitome of what love can be. This is my ode to the music that gets me through the restless nights. It is my thank-you note to jazz in all of its blue-collared wonder.”

Requiem for the Kid on Grand Piano is the fifth book in the Kloefkorn Series published by the WSC Press.
