Stanley Bronstein Interviews Jerome Kitzke


Jerome may live in New York City, but he grew up along the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, where he was born in 1955. Since his first work in 1970, he’s thought of himself as a storyteller as much as a music composer.  Some of the stories he tells through his music are about life’s personal roads, like The Redness of Blood and Sunflower Sutra, which both express his love for his blood family. Many, however, like Box Death Hollow and the soon to be released, The Paha Sapa Give-Back are about what it means to be an American late in the 20th Century, especially as it relates to the connection between how we live on this land and the way we came to live on it.

Jerome’s music celebrates American Vitality in its purest forms. It thrives on the spirit of driving jazz, Plains Indian song, and Beat Generation poetry, where freedom and ritual converge. It is direct, dramatic, and visceral — always with an ear to the sacred ground. He composes for and performs with his ensemble group, The Mad Coyote.
