Jazz Talmud Quartet, New York, NY, 12 January 2011

Wednesday, January 12, 7:30pm
The Cell Theater
338 West 23rd Street

Jazz Talmud Quartet ft. Jake Marmer (voice), Greg Wall (sax), Rob Henke (trumpet), and Uri Sharlin (keys).

Jazz Talmud is a poetry and music project where poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more, while musicians,
acting as Talmud’s interpreters Rashi and Tosefot spontaneously riff on the spoken material and each other’s reaction to it.

Some video samples are here:

Cover: suggested donation of $20 (reg) or $10 (student/senior) or pay-what-you-wish.
