I first saw Michael Horovitz when I was seventeen, at a reading he gave with Christopher Logue & Lawrence Ferlinghetti at St Pancras Town Hall. Since then our paths have crossed many times, & on a number of occasions I’ve filmed his New Departures events at the Royal Albert Hall & the 100 Club.
Over the past two or three years I’ve been working on a documentary, to date self-funded, on Michael’s long & colourful career. This clip shows him performing at the Queen Elizabeth Hall with the William Blake Klezmatrix, featuring trombonist Annie Whitehead & pianist Peter Lemer.
This is one of the projects for which I shall be seeking crowd-funding.
