First release in Tzadik's Radical Jewish Culture series. David Krakauer (clarinet, bs clarinet), Michael Alpert (vocals, accordion, violin, guitar), David Licht (perc.). "With a profound knowledge of Yiddish music heritage, the virtuosic Krakhauer Trio combines the traditions of klezmer with innovative composition, arrangement and improvisation to create a style with reverence, imagination and a sense of humor. Klezmer Madness features both traditional and original music, including tunes from the repertoire of klezmer clarinet greats Naftule Brandwine and Dave Tarras, and even John Zorn's Masada. Kraukhauer combines the diverse influences of Jewish and Balkan clarinet styles, minimalism, jazz and shredded Muzak to create a style uniquely his own."
