Jazz Midday Muse: Mark Hamilton & Klezperanto!
With solid klezmer roots, spectacular technical virtuosity, and a wry sense of humor, Mark Hamilton, Ilene Stahl, and an all-star line-up of Boston's best musicians re-groove traditional klezmer and Mediterranean melodies, rip up Romanian surf tunes, cover cop show themes and cumbias, slay a few standards, and burnish it all to a funky finish. Since 1999, the six-piece instrumental band has delivered irresistible dance music from everywhere except your cousin's bar mitzvah.
Mark is a member of Wellesley College’s performance faculty, and has performed all over the world, recorded nine CDs as a member of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, and is a busy freelancer and educator. He has performed with Joe Williams, Itzhak Perlman, Victor Borge, Robin Williams, and Joel Grey, among others. As an arranger and composer, he specializes in klezmer and jazz music for concert bands and other ensembles. A graduate of New England Conservatory and the University of Delaware, he is a founding member of “Klezperanto.”
