David Krakauer – Abraham Inc feat. Fred Wesley

Year: 2010
Director: David Unger
Genre: Live Show


A hellish mix for the ultimate groove: when a former accomplice of James Brown (Fred Wesley) makes a pact with the craziest of klezmer blowers (David Krakauer) and the most azimuthal of Montreal DJs (SoCalled), the orgy is total! Festive and contagious klezmer-funk-rap to make the dead dance! A meeting between Afro-American popular culture and the New York Jewish diaspora, this Abraham Inc. sounds like an obvious choice. Krakauer’s clarinet spans the Yiddish musical tradition, free jazz, the most lithe rock and even electro. SoCalled’s tinkered machines and tinkered samplers infuse hip-hop with madness. And Wesley’s trombone invokes the funk gods with a foamy groove. Is it jazz? Klezmer music? Rap? Funk?
