THE KLEZ-X (formerly The San Francisco Klezmer Experience) is in the vanguard of new Jewish music. This phenomenal group of klezmer virtuosi is "the hottest source for klezmer" says the San Francisco Chronicle. The Klez-X mines the rich depths of klezmer, Yiddish folk and art song, and modern jazz to create a brilliantly original sound. Led by violinist and composer Daniel Hoffman, The Klez-X features reed player Sheldon Brown, Yiddish singer and accordionist Jeanette Lewicki, percussionist Kevin Mummey, bassist Richard Saunders, vocalist and trumpeter StephenSaxon, and trombonist Charlie Seavey.
