John Zorn: ABRAXAS: Concert at the Stone, NYC
Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz: Abraxas: The Book Of Angels Volume 19 [#8302] – Stone Concert. October 9th, at 10 PMrd at The Stone, NYC
Producer and bassist Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz has been a mainstay of the downtown scene for over a decade now, working with and producing CDs by Daniel Zamir, Cyro Baptista, Eyal Maoz, Jon Madof, Yoshie Fruchter and more. Here he steps out on his own to make one of the most tribal and primal installments in the Book of Angels series. Drawing on his Sephardic roots, Shanir plays gimbri throughout, giving the music a primeval Moroccan edge. Featuring the intense guitar pyrotechnics of Eyal Maoz (Edom, 9 Volt with Time Berne, Hypercolor) and Aram Bajakian (who recently has been tearing it up in Lou Reed’s new band) and the atavistic drumming of Kenny Grohowski, this is Ritualistic Jewish Rock for the 21st century from a brilliant young lion from the East Village via Brooklyn/Israel!…

FOLKSBIENE REACHES NEW AUDIENCES WITH “THE GOLDEN LAND” REVIVAL OPENING NOVEMBER 4
PRODUCTION EXPLORES BROADER THEMES OF IMMIGRATION, IDENTITY AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
The National Yiddish Theatre – Folksbiene brings back the beloved musical, “The Golden Land,” for five weeks, from Sunday October 28 to December 2, with an opening on Sunday November 4 at 6pm. Created by Zalmen Mlotek and Moishe Rosenfeld, and directed by Bryna Wasserman, this new production of “The Golden Land” (which premiered Off-Broadway in 1985) reimagines the show’s scenic design and staging to heighten the theatrical experience for contemporary audiences. The innovative book and score uses period music and other source material to create a richly textured evocation of Jewish immigrant life in New York from the 1880’s into the 1910s, and again, in a second starkly different phase immediately before and after World War II.…
