Russian-born clarinetist/saxophonist/composer Alex Kontorovich is one of the young rising stars on the NYC and international klezmer, classical and jazz scenes, having performed with the Klezmatics, Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars, Jamie Begian's Big Band, the Toronto Philharmonia, the Waterloo Symphony, DJ SoCalled, and many others. He is a member of Aaron Alexander's Midrash Mish Mosh, King Django's Roots and Culture Band, KlezSka, the Brellochs Saxophone Quartet, and is a founding member of the Klez Dispensers. In this quintet, his first solo project, Alex explores the rich variety of American klezmer, jazz and other influences through original compositions in a traditional klezmer style, as well as modern arrangements of klezmer standards.
