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).
