Meyer Lansky

Meyer Lansky

The performance of “Lansky: The Mob’s Money Man” for jazz singer, narrator, choir & jazz orchestra (World premiere) will be on Monday 27 April 2015 at the QEH, South Bank; a new work I was commissioned to compose with the Crouch End Festival Chorus.  It spotlights the remarkable life of mobster Meyer Lansky – a key player in the criminal underworld who built an international gambling empire.  Infused with Klezmer, New York and Cuban jazz styles, it is a vivid portrait of the ‘Mob’s Accountant’.
