In 1961 Jeremy Robson arranged a poetry and jazz concert at Hampstead Town Hall. It was the first of hundreds of events. You don t often get to puff the line a star-studded cast of poets but Poetry and Jazz in Concert had that. Spike Milligan, Adrian Mitchell, Ted Hughes, Laurie Lee, Dannie Abse, Jeremy Robson himself spoke their words at times, The jazz generally specially written by Michael Garrick featured some of the finest musicians of the day. This special 50th Anniversary DVD sees Dannie Abse, Alan Brownjohn and Jeremy Robson read their own work. Poetry may be immortal but poets aren t. So Celia Mitchell reads her late husband, Adrian s work. Jessie Lee reads poems by her late father Laurie. Sasha Mitchell sings two of her father s biting songs. You ll never let you think of marrow bone jelly in quite the same way again.
