RIP Fran Landesman (1927-2011)

The ‘Poet Laureate of lovers and losers’, ‘the jazz world’s answer to Dorothy Parker’, lyricist supreme, the writer of the words of “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most” Fran Landesman passed away last night. She had survived her husband of 60 years Jay by just a few months.

Kai Hoffman wrote this lovelyreview/tribute for us as recently as April when Fran Landesman hosted a very special evening at Leicester Square Theatre.
