The London Jazz Musician Goes Forward


Frank London, one of the most important trumpeters of the New York jazz scene radical jewish culture, the Museum will present POLIN its unusual American-Hungarian team: Glass House Orchestra. Eminent musicians will take us on a journey through the streets of Budapest before the war. In addition to the trumpet will sound, among others, London guitars, violins and cymbals.

London is one of the most important figures of the Renaissance of Jewish music in New York and around the world. He is a member and co-founder of the legendary group The Klezmatics - which for her album Wonder Wheel was in 2007 awarded the Grammy for best album in the category of world music. London is also famous group of Hasidic New Wave and the Klezmer Brass Allstars. Even more impressive is the list of artists who invite the trumpeter to his own projects: from Chava Alberstein, by Lester Bowie, Iggy Pop to John Zorn. In Poland, we often listen to him in England, where he has been a regular visitor and star of the Festival of Jewish Culture.

Sometimes Guitarist Like Working with Jazz musicians

This time London collaborated with seven musicians from the USA and Hungary. Each of them represents a different musical tradition and experience. As a pretext for this experiment will serve traditional Jewish music from Hungary. New York City will be represented by Aram Bajakian, a young guitarist known for his work with Lou Reed and well accepted copyright recordings for the publishing house John Zorn: ethnomusicologist and violinist Jake Shulman-Ment, giant Argentinean jazz bassist Pablo Aslan, and Yonadav Halevy - one of Israel's most famous jazz drummers. From Budapest Museum POLIN come Miklós Lukács - one of the most important virtuosos and innovators of traditional Central European dulcimer, singer and violinist Edina Szirtes Mokus and multi-instrumentalist combines his playing jazz, folk and experimental music - Béla Ágoston.
