Two of the leading lights of the Yiddish music renaissance join forces in this program based on their recent joint album, Vilde Mekhaye (Wild Ecstasy). The soulful and inimitable vocalist Eleanor Reissa – known as the queen of Yiddish cabaret – and trumpeter-composer Frank London – the mystical high priest of New Wave avant-klez jazz – have been inspiring each other for more than a decade. Together with the great Klezmer Brass Allstars, they explore the world of Yiddish song, from the obscure to the chestnuts, from the sacred to the profane, fueled by the best brass band in the land.
