KLEZMOLOGY: KLEZMER REINVENTED
With Jonno Lightstone, David Mott and Nick Fraser
When clarinetist and flutist Jonno Lightstone jammed for the first time with baritone saxophonist David Mott in 2013, two musical traditions collided: traditional klezmer and contemporary improvisation. The result was Klezmology. Two years later, Nick Fraser, free-form jazz percussionist, joined them. His dynamic rhythms took it to a new level. In the hands of these three virtuoso musicians, the irrepressible energy of the shtetl fuses with the playfulness of avant-garde jazz. Klezmology is a rare musical experience, never the same twice.
