As some of you know, this going to be the last one for a while…
Wed, Jan 12th 7.30PM at the Cell Theater
Jazz Talmud Quartet ft. Jake Marmer (voice), Greg Wall (sax), Rob Henke (trumpet), and Uri Sharlin (keys).
Jazz Talmud is a poetry and music project where poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more, while musicians, acting as Talmud’s interpreters Rashi and Tosefot spontaneously riff on the spoken material and each other’s reaction to it.

Cover: suggested donation of $20 (reg) or $10 (student/senior) or pay-what-you-wish.
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts promptly at 8pm
