Composer, arranger and keyboardist Shlomo Leiderman's new Brooklyn-based sextet "Old Red Wine" takes off where his Israeli group, "Adom Atiq", left off.
Like most young musicians in the 1960s in the Soviet Union, Shlomo Leiderman went underground to learn about and play American Jazz. His first love was Louis Armstrong and Dixieland Jazz, and from there expanded to jazz vanguard of mid 20th century. In the 1970s, his family moved to Israel where Mr. Leiderman earned a degree in conducting from the Tel Aviv Music Academy.
Later, as Music Director of the State Yiddish Theater of Israel in Tel Aviv, he composed and arranged for a number of productions that toured worldwide. During this time, Mr. Leiderman also founded and directed, "Adom Atiq", an ensemble noted for its fusion of jazz, Jewish folk and original music. The band played for 17 years, touring Europe and the Americas, including a L.A. music festival.
