Andy Statman Trio & Andy's Ramble Bluegrass Quartet
Andy Statman performs a two-set show with his brand new Jewish music trio, featuring him on accordion and clarinet, which leads off a double bill capped by his bluegrass quartet.
Had there been a planetarium in 19th-century Galicia, or a kosher deli in Depression-era Kentucky, Andy Statman s music might have been playing in the background. Meandering through time, geography, and culture in a few passionate, organic gusts of music, neither the man nor his inimitable hybrid sound has a very clearly defined before or after. Statman, one of his generation s premier mandolinists and clarinetists, thinks of his compositions as a spontaneous, American-roots form of very personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz.
