WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Long acknowledged as a pioneer of World Music, as well as Jazz and Classical, virtuoso performer, brilliant conductor and composer of uncompromising originality since the 1950s, David Amram's compositions and his unique approach to music continues to attract a worldwide audience. He has composed the film scores for Splendor in The Grass, The Manchurian Candidate, The Young Savages and the landmark 1959 documentary Pull My Daisy, narrated by his good friend and collaborator, Jack Kerouac, whose classic book On the Road is considered to be the voice of The Beat Generation. Blending live music with insightful storytelling and poetry, Amram celebrates the artistic legacy he forged with Kerouac on this, the 50th anniversary of On The Road and Pull My Daisy.
