Our next klezmer jam is back to relaxed mostly request format, Wednesday, January 17th, from 7:30 - about 10, with a soup and snack break at 9. Please bring finger food potluck items or beverages to share. We meet at 9705 1st Ave NW, Seattle. I have sheet music for most everything although I hope we will do more by ear as the year progresses.

This month's inspirational listening is the Chicago Klezmer Ensemble The Chicago Klezmer Ensemble - Early Recordings (Full Album), with almost an hour of fine klezmer music. Thank you to Joe Bowbeer who suggested I create a youtube playlist of the various links I have posted. Feel free to check out or subscribe to it at Klez Chaos inspiration - YouTube.
