Andy Statman, one of his generation’s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions and performances as “spontaneous American-roots music and personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.” This modest man takes for granted that a performer might embody several world in his art, and seems humbled by the fact that his music, like his story, is extraordinary.
Andy says he revisits his musical journey with his trio each time they perform: “We’re creating an experience between the audience and us,” with their unconstrained meditations on Hasidic music and groove-driven explorations of American-roots music. His collaborators include bassist Jim Whitney and percussionist Larry Eagle. They perform frequently at the Charles Street Synagogue, in the West Village. “At a certain point, we’re just talking, just having a three-way conversation.”
