Murray Lerner RIP

September 6th, 2017

We’re very saddened to learn of the recent passing of legendary filmmaker Murray Lerner. I had the great pleasure to work with Murray on the ‘What’s Going On: Taste Live At The Isle Of Wight’ film over several months in 2015. I learnt a huge amount working and negotiating (!) with Murray, he was an exceptionally clever man with a vast knowledge of music and film. He captured some of the most vital moments in 20th century music from the Newport Jazz Festival (Bob Dylan / Howlin’ Wolf / Muddy Waters) to the Isle Of Wight 1970 (The Who / Jimi Hendrix / Miles Davis) to his Oscar winning film ‘From Mao To Mozart’. Our thoughts and best wishes are with his family.
