ORAN ETKIN - REIMAGINING BENNY GOODMAN

 
 

Mon Oct 24th - 7:30 PM

DROM / 85 Ave A (between 5th & 6th Sts), Manhattan, NY

 

Oran Etkin, one of the top young jazz clarinet masters of our time, honors the spirit of daring innovation of Benny Goodman's 1930s quartet, which included the likes of Lionel Hampton, Gene Krupa and Teddy Wilson. This concert, where Oran is joined by Sullivan Fortner on piano, Matt Willson on drums, and Bryan Carrott on vibes, is an earnest homage that filters groundbreaking music of the beggining of the swing era through the prism of our time. Originally presented at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola as part of the Newish Jewish Festival the project was subsequently released on Motema Records as "What's New? Reimagining Benny Goodman" to coincide with the 80th anniversary of Benny Goodman's legendary 1935 Palomar Ballroom concert that kicked off the Swing Era.
