Jake MarmerJazz Talmud: Publication Party & Concert!

Thu Jan 19th, 8pm

Sixth Street Synagogue
325 E. Sixth Street
New York, NY 10003

We'll be celebrating publication of Jake Marmer's first poetry collection Jazz Talmud with a jazz-poetry performance ft. Jake Marmer (voice), Frank London (trumpet), Rabbi Greg Wall (sax), Eyal Maoz (guitar), Uri Sharlin (keys).

Jazz Talmud project a new incarnation of the jazz poetry genre. Marmer's poetry is reminiscent of Talmudic rhetoric, while also contemporary, funny, and raw. The musicians provide spontaneous Talmud-style "commentary" on the recited text, as they argue, battle for meanings, riff and mock each other and the text.

Admission $10
