David Krakauer’s Eclectic Clarinet

Klezmer, jazz, classical, and more—it’s all there in the playing of this modern master.

In the video clip below, David Krakauer gives a brief description of the klezmer style that’s close to his heart and demonstrates what it sounds like when he and his band Klezmer Madness play it. Although their music is rooted in the Jewish traditions of 19th-century eastern Europe, you can tell that Krakauer and crew have also been influenced a good deal by present-day rock and electronica.
