Charming Hostess, Cambridge, MA, Sep 16

Friday, September 16, 2005
Charming Hostess

time: 8:00p

location: Rm 54-100 (Green Bldg)

Performance from the female ensemble's new CD, "Sarajevo Blues" (Tzadik), which draws on Bosnian poetry of love and resistance, celebrating the triumph of the human spirit. In "Sarajevo Blues," Charming Hostess takes history and news as a context, but steers towards poetry as a way to focus on daily life under siege. Some songs explicitly speak of war, and others of cafe culture, underground sexuality, freedom and the nature of evil.The ensemble includes Katzenstein Lecturer Jewlia Eisenberg (see Sept 15) whose music is rooted in the body?voices and vocal percussion, handclaps and heartbeats, sex-breath and silence. "Charming Hostess makes music like no other? Thrown in with lively North African wedding songs and Eastern European folk songs are originals that display a proudly feminist, radical-Jewish, pro-sex sensibility," wrote the New York Times.

Anthony Colemen in Kurt Weill tribute, NYC, Mar 4

Kurt Weill Birthday Tribute
Saturday Mar. 4
8:00 PM

Curated by Anthony Coleman. Featuring Elysian Fields, Mark Anthony Thompson, Sanda, Shelley Hirsch, Doveman, Christina Courtin, Gina Leishman and the Main Squeeze Orchestra.

Kurt Weill, one of America's greatest composers, embraced myriad musical forms but found his greatest success in popular music and theater. Raised in Germany, the classically trained cantor's son developed dark, emotional and subversive social and political commentaries in collaboration with playwright Bertolt Brecht. Pianist Anthony Coleman and friends pay tribute to the man behind The Threepenny Opera and present modern takes on his seminal songs, including "Ballad of the Soldier's Wife," "Alabama Song," "Mack the Knife" and "Lost in the Stars."

This event will take place at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Chambers Street.

Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.

Burton Greene, of Klezmokum

Just to let you know I'm doing one more year end gig--solo piano this time at Tompkins Square Library, 331 E. 10th St., NYC, Wednesday, December 27, at 6 PM until 7 PM. It's free entrance so make it down if you can! I'm doing the material from my new solo CIMP CD "Burton Greene Retrospective 1961--2005" A reworking of older rediscovered old manuscripts I co-composed with flautist Jon Winter in 1961--62 as well as some more recent and new compositions. (Jon Winter and I together with bassist Alan Silva formed The Free Form Improvisation Ensemble in 1963--quite possibly the first ensemble to play wholly improvised music together.) The solo CD is coming out in January.

She is the recent winner of the Kaji Aso Studio's "Tanabata" Composition Prize, the recipient of a Berklee faculty composition grant, has composed for the American Repertory Theatre Institute in Cambridge, and is a featured performer in concerts and at clubs throughout the Boston area.

Two great Israeli bands on one bill: Teapacks with their song “Push the Button” was Israel’s entry for the Eurovision contest. It raised a Brou-Ha-Ha by the European organizers, as it referred indirectly to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The YouTube video featuring the hit song instantly was viewed by over a million people.

Teapacks is:
Kobi Oz – Lead Vocal
Gal Peremen – Bass & vocals
Rami Yosifov – Guitar & vocals
Moti Yosephe – Drums
Noaam Yankelevitch – Keyboards, accordion & vocals
Danny Aberjel – Guitar

Izabo’s music has been described as a “Brilliant, action packed combination of Psychedelic Rock, Disco, Punk and Arabic spices”, or, if we are to name-drop, like an unlikely cross between Led Zeppelin, the Talking Heads, and Om Koltom.

Spinning between sets is dj handler, the founder and director of Shemspeed, Modular Moods, an independent record label, and the Sephardic Music Festival. As the brains behind Modular Moods and many of the hyped parties in and around NYC, dj handler defies musical stereotypes.

Lundi 12 Novembre à Espace Rachi 20h45
Cellie
quartet de Jazz
La musique de Cellie est émouvante et nous apaise autant que les textes qu'elle chante en français, swahili, anglais, créole et en yiddish. D'origine cubaine, juive polonaise, guinéenne et libanaise, elle a grandi dans la petite Jérusalem, à Sarcelles. Comme si toutes ses origines la comblaient... et nous avec.

Margot Leverett et Monique Lansdorp
klezmer-country
Margotte Leverett et son Klezmer Mountain Boys s'intéressent aux affinités communes entre la country et le klezmer. La base instrumentale de ces deux genres est semblable, ces deux musiques parlent de l'âme, celle d'un peuple. C'est surtout ce dialogue qui a intéressé Margot Leverett. Une expérience d'ouverture qui fait tout le sel de cette musique de fusion.

Advance Tickets are $20/$10. Tickets at the door are $25/$15. Subscribers receive the greatest discount. Brandeis Tickets: 781-736-3400.

The prophetic visions of Ezekiel are some of the most fascinating and vivid of all ancient texts. The traditional melodies used to chant them in the synagogue have been with us for ages, and serve as the inspiration for saxophonist Greg Wall’s Later Prophets. Featuring master percussionist and long time collaborator Aaron Alexander, seriously grooving bassist David Richards, and keyboards phenom Shai Bachar, the quartet manages to simultaneously straddle the gates of the ancient and avant-garde, while creating a musical experience that is as timeless as the texts themselves.

1414 Walnut Street, Berkeley
Saturday, February 23, 8:00 pm
$10 members, $12 non-members
Buy tickets NOW!

Craig Ventresco, Meredith Axelrod, and Rob Reich fashion music utterly unconcerned with the modern era. Concentrating on early 20th century vaudeville, ragtime, and popular songs as recorded on obscure 78s from the dawn of the recorded music era, their sound travels backwards across time, pleasantly rumbling down the dirt roads of an America that once was.

Dream Kitchen presents a radical reevaluation of early Jazz, showing its roots in ragtime and folk music and its implications for improvisation. Compositions by Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington are thrashed, trashed and smashed by a tuba-guitar-drums trio of John Schott, Marc Bolin, and John Hanes. The trio, whose members have won countless accolades in pretty much every musical genre, will also indulge in an investigation of the works of early Jewish Jazz composers.

David Chevan CD release, NYC, Aug 20, 2008

band photoThe Afro-Semitic Experience

I am excited to announce the forthcoming release of my new CD, Yizkor: Music of Memory. It is an album of original settings of the prayers and psalms associated with Yizkor, the Jewish memorial service. It was recorded this past November with Hazzan Alberto Mizrahi and my group, The Afro-Semitic Experience. Although there have been a number of jazz artists who have written requiem and memorial pieces I am fairly certain that no one has ever written a jazz setting for the Yizkor service.

On August 20, at 7:00 p.m. we will be premiering the work at the historic Museum at Eldridge Street in the lower east side of Manhattan. This is going to be quite a concert. Hazzan Mizrahi will be coming to New York from his home in Chicago to join us for this performance. We will also be joined by our old friend, trumpeter Saskia Laroo, who is coming to New York from her home in Amsterdam. And Hazzan Jack Mendelson, my teacher and mentor in the ways of Hazzanut is also planning to sing some pieces with us and possibly a duet with Hazzan Mizrahi (he's coming from White Plains which is practically in New York!). I have the feeling that this is going to be a good night of music.

The address of the Museum at Eldridge Street is 12 Eldridge Street in New York City. If you are interested in tickets or for more information please call 212-219-0888 or visit their web site at www.eldridgestreet.org . I hope that you will join us for that performance.

Afro-Semitic Experience, Paris, France, 18 Jun 2009

band photoSPIRIT OF JAZZ organise la venue en juin, pour la première fois à Paris, des deux fondateurs du collectif Afro-Semitic Experience : le contrebassiste David Chevan et le pianiste Warren Byrd.

Mélange de rythmes afro-américains et de mélodies hébraïques, la musique de David Chevan et Warren Byrd est l’aboutissement d’une histoire culturelle propre aux Etats-Unis. Quand le jazz rejoint la synagogue, cela donne un groupe chatoyant, riche et complexe qui illustre un dialogue et un vécu spécifiquement américains. A leur culture et leur pratique de musiciens de jazz se superpose un projet original, qui sait générer la méditation comme l'enthousiasme tout en évoquant les destins croisés des communautés américaines noire et juive américaines. Dans cette dynamique culturelle du prolongement et de la transmission, Warren Byrd et David Chevan construisent aussi un discours social qui affirme l’actualité d’une écoute entre les communautés, voire d’une synthèse qui aménage un espace commun tout en conservant les particularités de chacun. The Afro-Semitic Experience, créé en 1997, est un superbe et audacieux mélange de tradition juive et de bebop, de gospel et de musique synagogale.

Lazarus Quartet, NYC, 27 Dec 2009

My name is Ben Holmes, I'm a trumpet player based in Brooklyn, NY. I've recently starting leading my own Klezmer/Eastern European/Jazz group called "the Lazarus Quartet".

Our repertoire draws heavily on the recorded works of Dave Tarras and Naftule Brandwein. We also perform material from the Bulgarian, Greek and Turkish musical traditions. My mission with the band is to present this music in a way that's reflective of my experiences as a Jazz musician living in New York, so there is a lot of improvisation and spontaneity on stage. The Lazarus Quartet is Ben Holmes (trumpet), Uri Sharlin (accordion), Dan Loomis (bass) and Jeff Davis (drums).

NYBC Paper Bridge Fest: Hankus Netsky & Branches, Amherst, MA, 12 Jul 2010

NYBC Paper Bridge Festival logoOne of the most special New England events occurs not during the Fall leaf-gawking season, but in mid-July—starting today, in fact—when the National Yiddish Book Center opens its annual "Paper Bridge" festival, a week-long celebration of Yiddishkeit with lectures, workshops, film screenings, and of course, Jewish music new and old.

This year features two special exhibits, Mayer Kirshenblatt's paintings in a traveling exhibit titled: "They Call Me Mayer July" (so what more appropriate month!??). I am a major fan of the exhibit, and of his pictures, which capture life in pre-Holocaust Poland in a way that is both sweet and yet eschews the shmalzification of the period. Kirshenblatt's exhibit is balanced by a look at "Esn! Jews and Food in America. It's a hard combo to beat. [Off-topic, I note that the Jewish Women's Archive, where I work, has recently begun featuring regular guest blogs—is that an oxymoron?—on food and new kosher recipes. Yummy!

What matters most to KlezmerShack readers, of course, is that there will be music. Amazing music. New music. Tonight its Hankus Netsky's new ensemble, Branches, "… that uses Jewish musical tradition as a point of departure for creative exploration, performing repertoire drawn from klezmer, Yiddish theater, and cantorial traditions, along with new compositions and improvisations based on Yiddish poetry and other sources."

Jazz Talmud is a poetry and music project with Talmudic modes of dialogue, spontaneous interpretations, interruptions, arguing, and the ecstatic attempts at wisdom. The poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more. The horn players, acting as Talmud’s interpreters Rashi and Tosefot spontaneously riff on the spoken material and each other’s reaction to it.

Later Prophets Mon Oct 4th, 9pm Sixth Street Synagogue 325 East Sixth, b/n 1st and 2nd Ave $10 cover includes a drink sixthstreetsynagogue.org Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, Tzadik recording artists, bring a highly literate Jewish sensibility to the forefront of jazz. Wall, has found the perfect partners in his bandmates keyboard wiz Shai Bachar, drummer extraordinaire Aaron Alexander, and the effervescent David Richards on bass. Together, they are able to simultaneously straddle the gates of the ancient and avant-garde. A leading figure in NY’s downtown music scene, “rabbi and fiery, eclectic Jewish-jazz luminary” (Time Out NY) Greg Wall was ordained in 2006 and may well be the only recording and touring jazz musician who is also a rabbi. His work is “a surprising multicultural collision worthy of Bill Laswell or Kip Hanrahan at their best,” noted Jon Andrews in DownBeat. More info about Later Prophets: gregwall.com Concert will be preceeded by a class on mystical dimensions of Ramchal (R' Chaim Luzzato), taught by Rabbi Greg Wall at 7pm.

Jazz/Klezmer fusion
Sixth Street Synagogue: 325 East Sixth Street (b/n 1st and 2nd Ave)
$10 cover includes a drinkJazz Rabbi’s Invitational: Later Prophets

7:30pm: Class on Ramchal’s (Rabbi Chaim Luzzato) ‘”Derech Hashem”
8:30pm: Later Prophets

Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, Tzadik recording artists, bring a highly literate Jewish sensibility to the forefront of jazz. Wall, has found the perfect partners in his bandmates keyboard wiz Shai Bachar, drummer extraordinaire Aaron Alexander, and the effervescent David Richards on bass. Together, they are able to simultaneously straddle the gates of the ancient and avant-garde. A leading figure in NY’s downtown music scene, “rabbi and fiery, eclectic Jewish-jazz luminary” (Time Out NY) Greg Wall was ordained in 2006 and may well be the only recording and touring jazz musician who is also a rabbi. His work is “a surprising multicultural collision worthy of Bill Laswell or Kip Hanrahan at their best,” noted Jon Andrews in DownBeat.

Greg Wall's Later Prophets, NYC, 4 Apr 2011

Jazz Rabbi’s Invitational - April 4 at 7:30 PM
7:30 PM - Class on Ramchal’s (Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato) 'Derech Hashem' – All welcome, especially first-timers!
8:30 PM - Later Prophets
Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, Tzadik recording artists, bring a highly literate Jewish sensibility to the forefront of jazz. Wall, has found the perfect partners in his bandmates keyboard wiz Shai Bachar, drummer extraordinaire Aaron Alexander, and the effervescent David Richards on bass. Together, they are able to simultaneously straddle the gates of the ancient and avant-garde. A leading figure in NY’s downtown music scene, “rabbi and fiery, eclectic Jewish-jazz luminary” (Time Out NY) Greg Wall was ordained in 2006 and may well be the only recording and touring jazz musician who is also a rabbi. His work is “a surprising multicultural collision worthy of Bill Laswell or Kip Hanrahan at their best,” noted Jon Andrews in DownBeat.

The self-proclaimed 'Jewish Power Trio' is led by Jon Madof on guitar, with Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz on bass and Mathias Künzli on drums and percussion. The band gets its name from the noisemakers used during the raucous Jewish holiday of Purim.

In 2009 Rashanim released the all-acoustic 'The Gathering,' journeying far beyond their usual electric setting into a world of banjos, exotic percussion, and ethereal voices. Rashanim's concert at the Tzadik Radical Jewish Culture Festival will feature music from this repertoire.

The Sixth Street Community Synagogue and John Zorn's Tzadik Records present six concerts by some of the best and brightest musicians on New York's Downtown Jewish Music scene.

Hasidic New Wave
Sixth Street Synagogue
325 E. Sixth Street
New York, NY 10003

When five Downtown New York improvisers with deep roots in the jazz tradition embrace the Hasidic musical legacy and the scintillating rhythms of the holy land, a new voice emerges. Blending together an intense mixture of ethnic and cosmopolitan sounds, Hasidic New Wave fuses spiritual songs from Hasidic dynasties to funk and jazz, Arabic dances with avant-garde rock, and juxtaposes horas and freylekhs with sheer improvisation. Hasidic New Wave's alternatingly ecstatic and meditative performances, imbued (as is consistent with Hasidic tradition) with joy and passion, has led critics to liken the band to Sun Ra meets Jimi Hendrix at a Jewish wedding and exclaim HNW marries Hasidic music to avant-jazz, spinning traditional Jewish celebratory songs into extended Jazz improvisations that incorporate ferocious horn blowing and raucous electric guitar solos.

Sixth Street Synagogue
325 E. Sixth Street
New York, NY 10003

Masada Guitars Revisited:
In 1993 John Zorn began composing and performing his 208 tunes that now comprise Book I of the Masada songbook. The vast repertoire has been performed by a mind-blowing variety of ensembles and performers, including a 2003 CD entitled 'Masada Guitars,' featuring guitarists Marc Ribot, Bill Frisell and Tim Sparks. For the Tzadik Radical Jewish Culture Festival, Masada Guitars will be revisited by three guitarists of the younger Radical Jewish Culture generation: Pitom's Yoshie Fruchter, Edom's Eyal Maoz and Rashanim's Jon Madof.

Edom:
Eyal Maoz is a guitarist, bandleader and composer of great intensity and vision. His band Edom pushes Radical Jewish Culture to exciting new places with the addition of keyboard maniac Brian Marsella and Israeli drummer Yuval Lion. Tight, driving and intense, Hope and Destruction presents powerful Jewish rock instrumentals from a cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc Ribot.

Jewish artist will be performing at New York Gypsy Festival.

Drom
85 Ave. A, NYC
Tix: $15 adv/$20 door

DROM, located in East Village, will be celebrating with Roger Davidson and Frank London playing Jewish music and klezmer during the 7th annual New York Gypsy Festival. The event is on September 17 but the
festival starts Sept. 9.

More info:
www.dromnyc.com

Pianist and composer Roger Davidson's work in classical choral music, jazz, Brazilian music, and tango, introduces "On the Road of Life,"—a recording of original songs in klezmer style. Klezmer is an instrumental music tradition of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe. It's a mostly festive music, originally performed for dancing at weddings and other joyful events. It shouldn't surprise then that for Davidson—born in Paris to a family with American, French, and German roots, raised in New York, and curious since childhood about the big world outside klezmer "might suggest both, honoring old bonds but also a world of possibilities."

On the Road to Life is not a traditional klezmer music recording. For Frank London, trumpeter, bandleader, and the album's arranger and producer. It represents the sound of klezmer distilled through Roger Davidson.

3 Cohens and Gilad Hekselman Trio
Sunday, April 29, 7:00 pm

The 3 Cohens are a trio of siblings from Tel Aviv, Israel – tenor saxophonist/clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Avishai Cohen and soprano saxophonist Yuval Cohen – whose sense of improvisational interplay is both uncannily fluent and wonderfully, infectiously warm. 3 Cohens will be backed by a rhythm section featuring Pianist Yonatan Avishai, bassist Omer Avital, and drummer Obed Calvaire.

Gilad Hekselman Trio, featuring bassist Joe Martin and drummer Obed Calvaire and will present the opening set in this incredible night of Israeli Jazz.
Gilad Hekselman is a remarkable young guitarist who “has set himself roughly in the line of Pat Metheny and Kurt Rosenwinkle with a warm and clear guitar tone, clear articulation, crazily extended improvisational ideas, speed when he needs, an advanced understanding of harmony and the flexibility to go wherever his bands want…”

Ljuba Davis Ladino Ensemble, NYC, 15 Jun, 2012

After many years of singing lush Ladino melodies, Ljuba Davis finally preserves her music in a timeless album, East and West (6/12/12). The Ljuba Davis Ladino Ensemble present their songs with little tugs of musical dominance, which differs from what most would envision as the typical Judaeo-Spanish style.

Led by bouzuki master, Avram Pengas, Davis' ensemble is made up of some of New York’s top Greek, Arab, and Jewish musicians. Their lush Middle-Eastern melodies beautifully compliment Davis' joyous, yet dynamic, voice with an acoustic richness. They will be performing at DROM in New York City on June 15th, 8pm.
