Howard Samuel’s ‘Invade My Privacy’ is a musical tribute to the work of the American poet and songwriter Fran Landesman.

Seen as ‘the poet laureate of lovers and losers’, Fran’s work spans generations, her songs have been covered by musicians including Barbera Streisand, Miles Davies, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Gil Evans, Keith Jarrett andRoberta Flack, whilst  she has written with and for many other artists including Dudley Moore, Georgie Fame, Roy Krall, John Simon and Bob Dorough.

This recording features the stage stars Jacqueline Dankworth, Lucy Dixon, Michelle Fine, Tina Jones alongside Howard Samuels himself.  It includes the now established jazz classic ‘Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most’ and‘The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men’, both songs from the ‘The Nervous Set’, the musical satire of the Beat Generation poets and artists that Fran wrote with Tommy Wolf and Jay Landesman
