Lubet, Brin-Ingber, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, Dec 3

Alex Lubet writes to the Jewish-music list:

If you're anywhere near the Twin Cities, you may want to check out my
next gig 12/3, 730 pm, at Beth Jacob Synagogue in Mendota Heights, a
performance with my long-time collaborator, dancer/choreographer Judith
Brin-Ingber. I'll be doing my Ani Maamin and Maoz Tzur for guitar and
Shabbat Ha-Malkah for bass. Together, J and I will perform Hannelore
and our newest collaboration, Footnotes. Judith will perform Bari
Simone and Sarah, the latter featuring vocalist Amy (Yes, she's Jewish!)
Olson.

Most of the program is a tribute to Jewish women, a project-in-progress
that will eventually include exclusively original repertoire devoted to
our moms, sisters, partners, and female friends. Proud to say that the
dude of the duo came up with the idea (while watching a Seinfeld rerun
and getting tired of the way Jews are depicted in American pop culture
exclusively as something less than we are, a position I think hurts
women even more than men).

Between Two Worlds/The Dybbuk, NYC, 2/21

Jack Falk writes:

About 10 years ago I was drafted as music director for a
puppet theater production of "The Dybbuk" here in Portland.
(Since then I've worked on two other productions of the same
play, leading me to speculate that while possession might
not actually be 9/10 of the law, it was certainly approaching
9/10 of my musical activity.)

After all this time, "Between Two Worlds/The Dybbuk" has been remounted, and this time it's going on the road. In New York, there are three performances: Thu 2/19 8 pm, Sat 2/21 8 pm, and Sun 2/22 3 pm at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. For ticket info: (917) 606-8200.

Vampire Suit, Brooklyn, NY, Jun 17

Vampire Suit draws on Jay Vilnai's unique musical heritage as a Russian- Romanian-Polish descendant raised in Jerusalem around a mix of contemporary and traditional Jewish and Arab music, with a soul for rock n'roll and a BFA in jazz. Couple that with a passion for Bartok and Stravinsky and you end up with all original music that draws on all those influences to create something akin to traditional music for a generation that has so many traditions it calls his. Balkan and Middle-Eastern rhythms are prominent, backed by 20th century composing concepts and jazz improvising. Vampire Suit will be playing June 17th, at 8:00pm at Barbes, corner of 9th St. and 6th Ave. in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

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.

Alef-Bet: Music of the Hebrew Letters, Saint Paul, MN, October 24, 2009

On October 24, Joseph Vass is premiering eight compositions based on the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Artist Robyn Awend has created visual art to work along with the music. Joe has scripted a narration intended to explain, enlighten and entertain.

The Alef Bet Ensemble unites ten of Minnesota’s finest and most versatile musicians:

Bass - Chris Bates

Violin - Carolyn Boulay

Drums - Jay Epstein

Trumpet - Dave Jensen

Cello - Michelle Kinney

Woodwinds - Dale Mendenhall

Viola - Michael Rieff

Violin - Gary Schulte

Woodwinds - Bruce Thornton

Piano - Joseph Vass

Judging by contemporary audience reaction and subsequent history, those who came to previous Vass premieres at the St. Paul JCC, including Gershwin The Klezmer and Klezmerica, were delighted they came. We’re aiming for the same with Alef-Bet: Music Of The Hebrew Letters.

The world premiere of Alef-Bet: Music of the Hebrew Letters is scheduled for Saturday night, October 24, 7:30 PM, at the Jewish Community Center of St. Paul, 1375 St Paul Avenue in Saint Paul. More information is available at (651) 698-0751 or at www.stpauljcc.org/jewish/arts_events.lasso

C Lanzbom and Chana Rothman, The Living Room, NY, NY, November 10, 2009

NEW YORK, NY Uplifting groove-oriented music that combines hip hop, reggae, folk, and a bit of Hebrew.

The concert takes place on Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 8pm at the Living Room, 154 Ludlow Street, NYC. Cover charge is $12. Chana will be sharing the bill with C Lanzbom and BettySoo. This concert is part of WFUV's "On Your Radar," a live music series sponsored by John Platt, host for WFUV's Sunday Breakfast. For more information about the show, contact (212) 533-7237 or visit www.livingroomny.com.

WFUV will also air an in-studio session on Sunday November 1 from 10-11 a.m., featuring Chana Rothman and C Lanzbom on John Platt's Sunday Breakfast at 90.7 FM in New York and on the web at wfuv.org.

MORE ABOUT CHANA ROTHMAN:

Chana's music, using two languages and ancient texts to address social ills and joys of today, brings a universal appeal. The message is unity through music. Two years as a Head Songleader in Reform Judaism's teen leadership summer camps helped Chana develop a passion for music as a tool to bring communities together.

RICHARD ANTONE of ELMORE MAGAZINE writes: "Rothman's music bubbles with a conscious vibe that's capable of bringing people together. She is adept at using religious imagery and bilingual lyrics as a bridge rather than a wedge."

Chana's debut album, "We Can Rise," (Oyhoo Records) produced by C Lanzbom, was voted "Best Album of 2007" by jewschool.com and she was featured in "Top 5 Women Who Rock" by American Jewish Life and Lilith Magazine. Chana was also featured in the documentary film "Jewish Music: More Than Just Klezmer" produced by Brooklyn College Media Department.
NEW YORK TIMES says of Chana Rothman:"Worth Checking Out"

MORE ABOUT C LANZBOM

C Lanzbom has a very diverse career in performing around the world playing guitar, writing music, producing, and engineering. He has written with Perry Farrell (Janes Addiction), and shared the stage with him and artists such as Dispatch, Bruce Hornsby, Mickey Heart, and many more. C has had his music placed in Movies (When Do We Eat), and many T.V. shows including, MTV's The Real World "Sydney" and Real world "Brooklyn","The City" and various T.V. commercials.

ROB RUDIN'S HALF-JEWISH
The “There Will Be Cake” biennial
plus Dirty Water Brass Band
serving up eclectic music with dessert
Thurs., June 24, 10 pm
Lily Pad
Cambridge, MA

(Cambridge, MA) Rob Rudin's Half-Jewish: the “There Will Be Cake” biennial; plus Dirty Water Brass Band. Thurs., June 24, 10 pm. $10 suggested donation; includes dessert. Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge St., Inman Sq., Cambridge. For information log onto www.lily-pad.net or call 617-395-1393.

It's been two years since drummer Rob Rudin served up a nice piece of cake along with original music on the eve of his birthday. He may or may not be two years wiser, but he does have experience throwing a lively party at the Lily Pad venue. This year's concert features Rudin's new Jewish compositions and pieces by Jewish composers John Zorn and Leonard Cohen. Rudin will also premiere the suite Number 37 based on the life of world-champion athlete, jai-alai player Joey Cornblit, whose player number was 37.

"I put together the group Half-Jewish in order to play with some of my favorite musicians and to show that klezmer is not theonly Jewish music," says Rudin. The musicians include two Hot Tamale Brass Band members, clarinetist and saxophonistMark Chenevert and Danny Heath on trombone and vocals. Gill Aharon, who plays piano with his trio every Sunday at the Lily Pad, is along for the ride, as is trumpeter Sam Dechenne of John's Brown Body, HUMANWINE bassist Paul Dilley, violinist Mimi Rabson of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and multi-reedman Ted Roland.

Steven Greenman w/Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble, Cleveland, OH, 21 Mar 2012

Steven Greenman">Steven Greenman in collaboration with the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble

Ethnomusicologist David Badagnani has created a fantastic ensemble dedicated to performing traditional Chinese folk music showing once again the bountiful richness and diversity of Cleveland's cultural and ethnic communities. The ensemble has graciously invited me for the finale to create a fusion of both traditional Chinese and traditional East European Jewish folk music.

The Melodies of Mah Jongg
7 p.m., Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
2929 Richmond Road
Beachwood, Ohio
$14 for the general public and $12 for Maltz Museum members; order in advance and save $2. Call (216) 593-0595 to order tickets.

Join the Cleveland Chinese Music Ensemble (featuring vocalist Xue "Snow" Yu of Qingdao, Shandong, China) for an intimate evening of graceful and exotic music inspired by the fanciful images seen on mah jongg tiles--the four seasons, flowers, winds, and dragons--played on traditional Chinese instruments.

As an added attraction, interspersed between the pieces will be selected readings (in both Chinese and English) of evocative poems from China's classical antiquity, as well as showings of traditional watercolor flower paintings.

For a memorable finale, the internationally renowned, Cleveland-based klezmer violinist Steven Greenman will join the ensemble for a cross-cultural performance of a Jewish favorite, recreating the kind of musical interaction that could have taken place between Jewish and Chinese musicians in the Lower Manhattan of the early 20th century.

This program is held in conjunction with the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage's showing of the "Project Mah Jongg" exhibition, which documents how this Chinese game of chance became a tradition among Jewish Americans beginning in the 1920s. The traveling exhibition, which was developed in New York City in 2010, opened at the Maltz Museum in January 2012.
