Jews and Jazz Series: An intimate jazz concert
Roy Assaf Trio

Israeli jazz pianist Roy Assaf has already racked up some prestigious prizes, including an ASCAP Young Jazz Composer award and the America-Israel Cultural Foundation Prize for Young Israeli Musicians. With drummer Jake Goldbas and bassist Ravi Markovitz, the trio delivers fresh color to the world of music. Their 2014 debut album, Second Row Behind the Painter, is a smooth mix of original compositions and classics. They have performed at venues such as The Blue Note and the Rubin Museum of Art, and recently toured to the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and Finland. No matter what song or style they play, there are always elements of melody, emotions and groove in their music.

Pre-Performance Talk at 7pm
Author Tamar Barzel
New York Noise: Radical Jewish Music and the Downtown Scene
Coined in 1992 by composer/saxophonist John Zorn, "Radical Jewish Culture," or RJC, became the banner under which many artists in Zorn's circle performed, produced, and circulated their music. Zorn and his circle sought to combine, as a form of social and cultural critique, the unconventional, uncategorizable nature of downtown music with sounds that were recognizably Jewish. Out of this movement arose bands, like Hasidic New Wave and Hanukkah Bush, whose eclectic styles encompassed neo-klezmer, hardcore and acid rock, neo-Yiddish cabaret, free verse, free jazz, and electronica. Tamar is an ethnomusicologist and lecturer at Harvard University whose research focuses on experimental music, with an emphasis on late twentieth-century jazz and the Jewish avant-garde. Free Admission to talk.

Concert: $34 premium reserved (center, 1st four rows) | $29 adults | $25 members and seniors (65+) | $20 under 30. Seating: Black Box configuration for 120.
