American Yiddish Song Book in Swingtime

Aaron Kula’s nine member Klezmer Company Jazz Orchestra (KCJO) will play a concert of traditional and beloved Yiddish melodies from the Jewish Sheet Music collection in the FAU Libraries Special Collections. KCJO will perform upbeat tunes and waltzes that originated from Eastern Europe and were played by the great Klezmer musicians of that period such as Dave Tarras, Naftule Brandwein, Ziggy Elman, Abe Ellstein, and others. KCJO will improvise and jazz up the “old” Klezmer tunes win the style reminiscent of klezmer bands from the 1930’s and 1950’s.
