Οι προστατευόμενοι του John Zorn The Crakow Klezmer Band ήταν ένα Πολωνικό σχήμα που συνδύαζε το klezmer [παραδοσιακή μουσική των Εβραίων Ασκενάζι] με την αβανγκάρντ και την τζαζ. Τους ακούμε σε μια σύνθεση του ακορντεονίστα – leader Jaroslaw Bester. Aπό το live άλμπουμ Remembrance του 2007 – τελευταίο πριν απ’ τη μετονομασία τους σε Bester Quartet.

John Zorn’s protégés The Crakow Klezmer Band was a Polish outfit which combined klezmer [Jewish Ashkenazi musical tradition] with avant-garde and jazz.
We hear a composition by their leader – accordionist Jaroslaw Bester. From the live album, Remembrance of 2007, last one before changing their name to Bester Quartet.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
