The Book Beri'ah Vol 6-Tiferet

Klezmerson: The Book Beri'ah Vol 6-Tiferet (Tzadik)

This Mexican Klezmer groups with three percussionists, and a number of guests on this album, blends rock, jazz, and funk with Klezmer and Mexican styles, an unusual hybrid to take on the 6th Volume of John Zorn's Book Beri'ah, "Tiferet", combining flute and horns with guitar riffs as they take on Zorn's complex melodies and themes of irresistibly warm grooves.

Artist Biographies:

Benjamin Shwartz: "I'm a musician born in Mexico City. I mainly play viola and piano, but also compose music for film and television shows. I just recently finished KM31, Without Return, the sequel to the original horror film by Director Rigoberto Castañeda out later this month.

I also I have a band called Klezmerson that combines rock, jazz with traditional Mexican and Jewish music influences. With that band I've recorded 5 albums and currently I'm working in the 6th. With Klezmerson I've toured Europe, United States, Canada and Latin America, I own a studio in Mexico called "La Caja Acustica," where I produce and mix other bands as well. I don't think I chose that profession it's just what I've been doing since I can remember.

I think that my specialty is experimental music combining different styles such as traditional Mexican rhythm (Son) with Klezmer (traditional Jewish music), from a contemporary point of view. I'm always searching for new sounds and new approaches.

I am always very comfortable working with orchestras; as a matter of fact I played in one for many years. When it comes to film scoring I try to always use these elements in a non-traditional way."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Based in Mexico, Klezmerson is a super creative ever changing ensemble led by violinist, composer and arranger Benjamin Schwartz. Here they do their critically acclaimed and best selling Book of Angels installment one better with wild arrangements blending a variety of Mexican musical traditions with the sound of Masada. Featuring electric and acoustic strings, keyboards, accordions, saxes and of course a huge array of Latin percussion, Tiferet is one of the most delightful and imaginative CDs in the Book Beriah!"-Tzadik
