About the album
The first release on Tzadik by one of the most celebrated and skilled clarinetists in the New Jewish Renaissance features Joel Rubin in a surprising and exciting new context—the fascinating and vibrant intersection between Jewish music and jazz. Joined by the versatile virtuoso Uri Caine on piano, they perform a freewheeling repertoire of Old and New World nigunim, cantorial music, klezmer classics and more. A fervent jazz fan since the age of nine, Joel shines like never before in this passionate meeting of modern Jewish masters.
