O’s Notes: Clarinetist and producer Paul Green performs klezmer, classical music and traditional jazz. While Jewish music resides deeply in his soul he became fascinated with jazz during his childhood listening to Louis Armstrong. Music Coming Together is Green’s attempt to marry jazz and the African American perspective with Jewish music and culture. He expresses all of the tension, conflict, passion and resolution through the music. While there are times when fans of either genre will search for the pause or skip button, they will typically hesitate to enjoy and appreciate new and different approaches ultimately to be rewarded. Our favorite is “Yiddish Footprints”. If only global harmony were so simple.
