Aaron Alexander has a long history of performing Klezmer music (and Jazz) on a high level with many of the renowned artists in the genre. He has been playing Klezmer music for over 27 years, and he finally decided to make a traditional Klezmer recording as a leader, (having appeared on dozens as a sideman). Alexander invited two of the finest young(ish) Klezmorim in the world to join him: Michael Winograd on clarinet, and Patrick Farrell on accordion. The three have some experience playing together. This recording was done by design without extensive rehearsal, in order to capture the feeling of playing “tunes we know” without overly self-conscious tentativeness.
Together they have made a CD here that reflects their deep experience with this music and has a feeling of spontanaeity and joy, the love of this music, the party music of the Jewish People of Eastern Europe and Brooklyn and Hell’s Kitchen.
Please come help us celebrate this trio’s new CD!
