Hasidic New Wave: Kabalogy

Trumpeter Frank London and saxophonist Greg Wall convey a bit of humor while describing Kabalogy as they intimate loose comparisons to Mahavishnu and Zappa while appending Hasidic names to the above. “Hasidic New Wave” compliment bands such as John Zorn’s Masada, or a host of upstart New York City based groups that meld Klezmer, Fusion, Ornette ...
