Michael Wex book launch, Montreal, QC, Canada, 28 Aug 2016

Michael Wex will launch his new book, Rhapsody in Schmaltz

Sunday, Aug 28, 2pm
Jewish Public Library,
5151 Côte Ste-Catherine Road,
Montreal, QC, Canada.

Admission: $10 for members and students, $15 for non-members.
For tickets and information call 514-345-6416 or visit www.jewishpubliclibrary.org.

A study of Ashkenazi food that does for Yiddish food what Wex’s book Born to Kvetch did for Yiddish speech, Rhapsody in Schmaltz traces the history and social impact of the cuisine that Yiddish-speaking Jews from Central and Eastern Europe brought to the U.S. and that their American descendants developed and refined. The book looks at how and where these dishes came to be, how they varied from region to region, the role they played in Jewish culture in Europe, and the role that they play in Jewish and more general American culture and foodways today. It traces the pathways of Jewish food from the Bible and Talmud, to Eastern Europe, to its popular landing pads in North America today. With an eye for detail and a healthy dose of humor, Michael Wex also examines how these impact modern culture, from temple to television.

He's a super in the pocket groove player with a great harmonic and melodic sensibility. I always have a blast getting down with him and I hope you will join us for one or both of the sets. And if you're a musician you're welcome to bring your instrument and sit in during the second set.

Who is Manny Blanc, Brooklyn, NY, 4 Sep 2016

Who is Manny Blanc?—theremin edition

Thu, September 4th 10 pm
Barbès
376 9th St.
Brooklyn, NY 11215

WHO IS MANNY BLANC? will be celebrating the music and aesthetic of this little known dynamic 60's New York musician and arranger. This edition will feature the notable discoverer of the lost Blanc recordings, Adam O'Callaghan, on the rare Moog (console) theremin. Our Québécois thereminist will be helping us re-interpret the music from Mr. Blanc's obscure yet astonishing LP released in the early 60's called "Jewish Jazz". Exotica meets futurist jazz, meets proto-surf - from double electric guitars to harmonica driven duck-call dialogue to theremin. The LP is one of the earliest attempts at putting klezmer melody in a jazz and groovy out-there context.

The band features some of NY's finest klezies:

Matt Darriau - reeds,
Adam O'Callaghan - theremin and reeds
Avi Fox-Rosen - guitar
Yoshie Fruchter - guitar
Ari Folman Cohen - bass
Chris Stromquist - drums

Journey from Salonica to Sarajevo, following the stories of vagabond queens, pauper poets and lovers lost to the sea. The intertwining music and storytelling conjure an imagi-nation lost to war and upheaval, recorded in a language that blends archaic Spanish with Arabic, Hebrew and Greek. Forgotten Kingdom brings these tales to life, drawing on musicians' expertise and instrumentation from homelands of Israel, Palestine, Argentina and the USA. Soulful voices, masterful narration, heart-pounding percussion, and intricate soundscapes render these songs in all their color, drama and heart.

New York, New York 10023

FREE, but requires ticket
www.nypl.org

One of the Metropolitan Klezmer’s specialties is the richly varied music found in vintage Yiddish film soundtracks. Join us for an evening of original klezmer arrangements performed live by the full octet, interpolated with scenes both from celebrated movie classics and lesser-known cinematic gems onscreen: Hasidic chant and sewing song from The Dybbuk; tenement wedding dance from Uncle Moses; melodies performed for newsreels made by Moscow’s State Yiddish Theater; Second Avenue swing, haunting love songs, and a little-known folkloric grandma’s dance, as heard in the Polish films of Molly Picon. A panoply of footage excerpts will be shared onscreen, interspersed with the band's exhilarating live musical interpretations of music found & inspired by vintage celluloid versions: Archival clips alternating with our live ensemble's re-takes on an astonishing array of movie music.

This multi-media concert event is offered free to the public -- first come, first served; so we recommend arriving early for a seat.

Three renowned performers of Eastern European Jewish music come together in this exceptional new trio: Lorin Sklamberg, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics; uniquely innovative clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, and the remarkable vocalist/pianist Polina Shepherd, originally from Siberia.
Each performer represents a different nation, yet their backgrounds are closely related, their ancestors emigrating from the Ukraine to find a better world elsewhere. This fresh collaboration blends traditional and contemporary Yiddish and Russian song with klezmer styles and Southern Mediterranean music. Influenced by several cultures and maintaining individual styles, the trio plays original and traditional material with freedom and spontaneity. With mournful solo clarinet, bouncy village songs, and some fiery vocals, their performance takes us on a breathtaking musical journey that is full of spirited joy and deep emotion.

Three renowned performers of Eastern European Jewish music come together in this exceptional new trio: Lorin Sklamberg, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics; uniquely innovative clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, and the remarkable vocalist/pianist Polina Shepherd, originally from Siberia.
Each performer represents a different nation, yet their backgrounds are closely related, their ancestors emigrating from the Ukraine to find a better world elsewhere. This fresh collaboration blends traditional and contemporary Yiddish and Russian song with klezmer styles and Southern Mediterranean music. Influenced by several cultures and maintaining individual styles, the trio plays original and traditional material with freedom and spontaneity. With mournful solo clarinet, bouncy village songs, and some fiery vocals, their performance takes us on a breathtaking musical journey that is full of spirited joy and deep emotion.
