This incredible ensemble pairs traditional Klezmer clarinet and flute with a rhythm section of acoustic bass, drums and piano, to create a mix of thrilling jazz improvisations, dazzling symphonic sounds and exotic Mediterranean melodies. Sensuous Eastern European rhythms and sophisticated jazz played with passion and fun, with styles ranging from the wildly joyous to the exotically dark, deep and sad. Fresh from an international tour that included Carnegie Hall and Montreux Jazz Festival, this is the only UK date on their tour.
