Avodas ha-Levi: Archival Recordings from the 1990s
"One of the originators of the Klezmer Revival, Andy Statman is one of the most important figures in modern Jewish Music. A talented instrumentalist, composer and bandleader, his recent music looks out from the traditional towards a more modern Jewish sound. Filled with lyricism and spirituality, these powerful recordings from his private archives show him at a creative peak. Along with the original recordings of his popular jazz-tinged quartet are two radical duets with drummer Bob Meyer reminiscent of the Interstellar Space John Coltrane/Rashied Ali duets of 1967. It is an honor for Tzadik to welcome this musical Grandmaster into the catalog of Radical Jewish Culture with his newest and most adventurous project to date."
