Shlomo Leiderman and Old Red Wine
Klezmer meets Dixieland

Like most young musicians in the 1960's 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.

Old Red Wine features Alex Polonsky, trumpet; Haim Fishas, clarinet; Alex Kaykov, trombone; Lev Zabeginsky, bass and balalaika, and Mika Marcovitch, drums, along with Mr. Leiderman on keyboards.

For the Windsor Terrace Branch, Old Red Wine performs original work and such Klezmer and Yiddish music classics as Heimisher Bulgar, Rozenkis mit Mandlen and Arum Dem Fire with jazz twist.

Be prepared for an evening of serious fun by master musicians complete with the balalaika!
