Glenn Hartman – Accordion

Jonathan Freilich – Guitar

Joe Cabral  (Iguanas) – Bass

Doug Garrison (Iguanas) – Drums

Ben Ellman (Galactic) – Saxophone​

The Klezmer All-Stars are a cheerfully frenzied study in the striking instrumental proximity of the Jewish diaspora to the lowdown liberation in the racing tempos and the spiral-snake motifs of Sidney Bechet records,” is how Rolling Stone summed up their high flying experience with the 20+ year old ensemble when including them in the magazine’s ‘best sets’ from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Accordionist Glenn Hartman, guitarist Jonathan Freilich and bassist Joe Cabral (Iguanas) are joined by drummer Doug Garrison (Iguanas) and saxophonist Ben Ellman (Galactic) to form an outfit that has been referred to as “The Yiddish Meters” and at other times a “Hebrew Allman Brothers Band.” Coming out of the turn of century Klezmer renaissance, the All Stars add a special twist to the Jewish roots music, based deep in the musical traditions of the group’s hometown. Street parade and Mardi Gras music, Dixieland, traditional, and contemporary jazz were mixed with traditional Yiddish tunes and new compositions to produce a unique, joyous and absolutely glorious sound.
