Frank London's Shekhina Big Band
The composer-trumpeter and Klezmatics co-founder gets klezmer on his jazznot to mention jazz on his klezmerduring this month's weekly residency-workshops. Backed here by a 21 piece band, London conducts arrangements of his work by a lineup that includes saxophonists Marty Ehrlich, Matt Darriau, and Peter Apfelbaum; trombonists Jacob Garchik and Curtis Hasselbring; percussionist Renato Thoms; drummer Richie Barshay; and too many others to mention. The music's celestial, volcanic, suspenseful, orthodox, reformed, and body-rocking.
