P.S. Also catch Krakauer's performance with Abraham, Inc. on Sunday, November 13, at Zellerbach Hall, U.C. Berkeley. Abraham, Inc. is a collaboration between David Krakauer, champion of klezmer music and world-class chamber clarinetist; legendary funk trombonist and arranger Fred Wesley, prized for his work with James Brown and George Clinton; and Yiddish hip-hop renegade and beat architect Socalled. Add a three-piece horn section led by Wesley, as well as musicians and rappers who collaborate frequently with Krakauer and Socalled, and the result is "music that cooks from the opening note!" (Prague Post). More info and tickets:
