David Amram (the man, not the cheese)
David Amram with Leonard Bernstein
David Amram is a living musical legend. In the Fifties, he was a jazz poet with Jack Kerouac.
In the Sixties he was Bernstein's first Composer in Residence at the New York Philharmonic. He is equally well known for his jazz, classical and ethnic music.
David has composed over 100 orchestral and chamber works, and has scored several films and plays. He worked with the late Joseph Papp on the libretto for the New York Shakespeare Festival's production of "the Twelfth Night".
On top of everything else, David is still farming, on the farm where he raised his three children, in Putnam Valley, NY.
By the way, I named a cheese after David, a small honor compared to his BMI award.....
