“JEWISH JAZZ II”

The interconnections between Klezmer and Jazz

May 25-27, 2018

Steve Loew and Daniel Weiser return for another exciting “JEWISH JAZZ” program, along with special guest, soprano Simone Vigilante, who will add her incredible voice to some of the works. This concert includes music from the 1920’s-1940’s that highlight some important Klezmer influences on the jazz instrumentalists and composers of this period, many of whom were Jewish.  This program features some Yiddish Swing, works by Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Harold Arlen, plus a great arrangement of Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”  Loew, Vigilante, and Weiser have performed around the world and put on a show that is second to none.   You will not want to miss this!

Listen below for Steve and Dan’s rendition of Artie Shaw’s Klezmer-inspired “Clarinet Concerto”:
