Michael Horovitz founded New Departures publications & Live New Departures roadshows in 1959, Jazz Poetry SuperJams in 1970 and the Poetry Olympics festivals in 1980. He has produced some 50 books of poetry & prose including A New Waste Land and Wordsounds & Sightlines’ plus various DVDs & recordings. His most recent collaboration with musicians resulted in two Jazz Poetry SuperJam records, an LP & Single from Gearbox Records also featuring Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon & Paul Weller. Introducing him in New York, Allen Ginsberg characterised Michael as a “Popular, experienced, experimental, New Jerusalem, Jazz Generation, Sensitive Bard”, in the same year that Vogue very unkindly dubbed him “The worst-dressed poet in Britain”.
