Jazz Talmud



Jazz Talmud is a poetry and music project with Talmudic modes of dialog, spontaneous interpretations, interruptions, arguing, and the ecstatic attempts at wisdom. The poems mimic Talmudic rhetoric, style and turns of phrase, as they reflect on the contemporary Jewish experience, jazz, dreams, loneliness and more. The horn players, acting as Talmud’s interpreters Rashi and Tosefot spontaneously riff on the spoken material and each other’s reaction to it.

Jazz Talmud premiered in September 2010 at the Cell Theater in Chelsea and featured the Ayn Sof Arkestra & the Bigger Band.
