Later Prophets

Greg Wall’s Later Prophets, Tzadik recording artists, bring a highly
literate Jewish sensibility to the forefront of jazz. Wall, has found
the perfect partners in his bandmates keyboard wiz Shai Bachar,
drummer extraordinaire Aaron Alexander, and the effervescent David
Richards on bass. Together, they are able to simultaneously straddle
the gates of the ancient and avant-garde. A leading figure in NY’s
downtown music scene, “rabbi and fiery, eclectic Jewish-jazz luminary”
(Time Out NY) Greg Wall was ordained in 2006 and may well be the only
recording and touring jazz musician who is also a rabbi (Sixth Street
Community Synagogue in NYC’s East Village). His work is “a surprising
multicultural collision worthy of Bill Laswell or Kip Hanrahan at
their best,” noted Jon Andrews in DownBeat.

Edom

Edom is an avant-rock-klez-jazz ensemble led by Eyal Maoz, hailed by
John Zorn as “Ecstatic music for a new generation”. Where Jazz meets
New Wave, and echoes of Joy Division are counterposed with John Zorn’s
Electric Masada, begins the rocking odyssey of Edom. Check the music
out at www.edommusic.com and http://www.eyalmaozmusic.com/

Jake Marmer

Jake Marmer, appearing at this gig with Eyal Maoz on the guitar and
Jeremy Danneman on sax, merges poetry, music, and performance into
such philosophically viral mixtures as existentialist dancehall,
talmudic jazz poetry, personalized bop apocalypse. He has performed
extensively in New York and Jerusalem, with his band Frantic Turtle,
Mima’amakim collective, and various hip downtown characters.
