Tzadik is proud to present the cutting edge music of the legendary avant garde pianist/composer Burton Greene. A pioneer of free jazz in the 1960’s and mastermind of the creative Klezmer band Klezmokum, his newest project Klez-Edge brings together both streams of Greene’s music together in a sparkling new ensemble that jumps from old to new in a heartbeat. Featuring some of Greene’s long time associates and some young new discoveries, the band is spontaneous, humorous and a perfect match for the Radical Jewish Culture series. A playful blending of jazz and klezmer by this astounding virtuosic quintet!
