David Amram is an elemental force in the history of American music. A true renaissance man -a classical, jazz, and film-score composer, novelist, improvisational lyricist, pre-eminent world and folkloric musician, and pioneer of the jazz French horn who is credited with being of the first to ever improvise on the instrument (considered the most challenging to play in western music). Amram played alongside Dizzie Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Charles Mingus, Sir James Gallway, Langston Hughes, Leonard Bernstein, and Jack Kerouac.
