|Jake Shulman-Ment: A Wheel|
Violinist Jake Shulman-Ment is among the leaders of a new emerging generation of klezmer and Eastern European folk music performers. In “A Redele”, his debut solo album, Shulman-Ment displays a remarkable versatility as violinist, composer, improvisor, arranger, bandleader, and producer, while consistently remaining true to his deep roots in traditional Jewish music.
A lushly virtuosic, sensitive klezmer violin album featuring original compositions, fresh improvisations, raucous and reflective vocals, and Gypsy-influenced melodies, performed by some of New York's top klezmer musicians.
