The Beat Generation, a three-CD anthology on Rhino Word Beat Records, highlights the legacy of the Beat era in all its manifestations. It gives glimpses of seminal Beat influences like Langston Hughes and Lord Buckley and re-creates, through poetry, jazz, comedy and interview segments, the aura of "hipness" that came to define the Beat Generation. The collection weaves the bop and postbop melodies of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan and others together with classic spoken-word and comedy performances by notables including Kerouac, Kenneth Rexroth and Lenny Bruce.
