Later Prophets Mon Oct 4th, 9pm Sixth Street Synagogue 325 East Sixth, b/n 1st and 2nd Ave $10 cover includes a drink sixthstreetsynagogue.org Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, Tzadik recording artists, bring a highly literate Jewish sensibility to the forefront of jazz. Wall, has found the perfect partners in his bandmates keyboard wiz Shai Bachar, drummer extraordinaire Aaron Alexander, and the effervescent David Richards on bass. Together, they are able to simultaneously straddle the gates of the ancient and avant-garde. A leading figure in NY’s downtown music scene, “rabbi and fiery, eclectic Jewish-jazz luminary” (Time Out NY) Greg Wall was ordained in 2006 and may well be the only recording and touring jazz musician who is also a rabbi. His work is “a surprising multicultural collision worthy of Bill Laswell or Kip Hanrahan at their best,” noted Jon Andrews in DownBeat.
