About

As part of the Hall's Summer of Love series enjoy an evening of jazz and poetry with legend Michael Horovitz and his William Blake Klezmatrix band performing their scintillating brands of jazz improvisation, poetry readings, and everything in-between. Featuring trombone player Annie Whitehead, pianist Pete Lemer and poet/visual artist Vanessa Vie. Michael Horovitz, who has been described as the 'last handshake to the Beat Poets', is one of the country's foremost troubadours, a revolutionary pioneer from the late 1950s onward, and an early champion of oral and jazz-poetry, whose flamboyant performances have energised audiences the world over. Horovitz was one of the featured artists in the landmark New Moon Carnival of Poetry in the Round that took place at the Hall in 1966, along with Allen Ginsberg and other leading poets of the age. Ginsberg famously characterised him as a, 'Popular, experienced, experimental, New Jerusalem, Jazz Generation, Sensitive Bard.'
