An unprecedented collaboration between three cultural visionaries - David Krakauer, champion of Klezmer music and world-class clarinetist; legendary funk trombonist and arranger Fred Wesley, celebrated for his work with James Brown and George Clinton; and hip-hop renegade and beat architect Socalled - Abraham, Inc. heralds a time when boundaries are eroding, mutual respect is presumed, and musical traditions can hit with full force without concession or appropriation. Backed by a three-piece horn section, the result is an all-out Klezmer-funk dance party! This is an utterly unique musical experience that will have you up and out of your seat.
