Mixed Marriage: Jazz and the Post-Klezmer Revolution in NYC

Greg WallI'm up late working on a list of currently active Jewish jazz musicians (e.g. musicians who mix Jewish music and jazz music) for the music fest and ran across this gem, "Mixed Marriage: Jazz and the Post-Klezmer Revolution in NYC." It's an hour and a half music performance and discussion with Lewis Porter and Greg Wall, sponsored by NYC's Philoctetes Center for the Multidisciplinary Study of the Imagination. Greg Wall is a great sax player who's played in a number of Jewish jazz fusion bands including Hasidic New Wave, the Greg Wall Trio, and The Later Prophets. He's also an ordained Rabbi. Lewis Porter is jazz pianist, author and Professor of Music at Rutgers University.

I wasn't able to embed the video, but you can watch it on YouTube. And you should....
