Hasidic New Wave

Hasidic New Wave one of the most influential groups of the "Downtown" based Jewish Renaissance, is credited, along with John Zorn's Masada, with creating the genre of Jewish inspired jazz. The five-person group blends the sounds of modern jazz and funk with the older traditions of Hasidic spiritual songs, resulting in both energetic improvisations and original works. Band members include Greg Wall (tenor saxophone and also rabbi at the Sixth Street Community Synagogue in NYC's East Village), Frank London (trumpet and also a member of The Klezmatics), David Fiuczynski (guitar), Aaron Alexander (drums and percussion) and Fima Ephron (bass.) The band has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America, releasing 5 CDs, including the groundbreaking collaboration with Senegalese master drummers Yakar Rhythms, "From The Belly of Abraham".
