Quote from Torchbearer website at http://poetryolympics.com/torchbearer:
Poet, singer-songwriter, jazz and blues anglo-saxophonist …
An early champion of oral and jazz poetry, whose flamboyant performances have energised every kind of audience on both sides of the Atlantic, Michael Horovitz has been variously described as: “an original poet, with an original voice” (Margaret Drabble); “a Cockney, Albionic, New Jerusalem, Jazz Generation, Sensitive Bard” (Allen Ginsberg); “a dreamer, a maverick … transmedial crusader” (Martin Amis).
