Klez-Edge is the new project from legendary avant-garde pianist/composer Burton Greene. A pioneer of free jazz in the 1960s and mastermind of the creative Klezmer band Klezmokum, Klez-Edge brings together both streams of Greene's music together in a sparkling new ensemble that jumps from old to new in a heartbeat. Featuring some of Greene's long time associates and some young new discoveries, the band is spontaneous, humorous and a perfect match for the Radical Jewish Culture series. They have released Ancestors, Mindreles, Nagila Monsters in 2008 via Tzadik.
