The Joan A. Backman Memorial Concert

This reunion concert of David Krakauer's original post-Klezmatics outfit, Klezmer Madness, features Krakauer's groundbreaking fusion of the early klezmer sounds of immigrant-era clarinetist Naftule Brandwein, the jazz influence of New Orleans clarinet great Sidney Bechet, and the funky undertones of James Brown. Klezmer Madness showcases Krakauer's soulful, boisterous clarinet on classic instrumental klezmer tunes and original compositions that merge the synagogue wail with the avant-garde jazz of 1950s and 60s New York, all driven by an incessant, rhythmic pulse that explores the affinities between klezmer dance and modern soul music. Joining the group as a featured artist on this special occasion will be Socalled - Krakauer's co-leader of the klezmer-funk supergroup Abraham Inc. - who will add digital beats and samples to the eclectic mix of Krakauer's postmodern klezmer stew.
