New arrangements and compositions) of some timeless and great material by composers who have used Jewish themes or modes in their compositions. Highlights include "Yiddish Blues" (from 1919!), John William's "Theme from Schindler's List", A Wayne Shorter composition "Indian Song", extended and is now entitled "Indian Judaic Song", "Jews and Gypsies Suite II", "Araber Tants" (early 20th century Jewish composition--a tribute to Arab Culture). Harold Arlen (Hyman Arluk) and Truman Capote's piece: "A Sleepin Bee", the dynamic Chassidic pieces "Nigun--Zhuritze Chlopotzi", and "Ketsad M'rakdin", and 2 lovely pieces from Fiddler On the Roof: "Sabbath Prayer', and "Sewing Machine". We are a pioneer in Klezmer/Balkan/Jazz.. (Since 1989). Come out and enjoy a hopefully nice sunny summer's day with Klez-Edge!
