Andy Statman, one of his generation's premier mandolinists and clarinetists, is playing Club Passim in Cambridge, MA on Monday, December 4th at 7:30 PM. Statman thinks of his compositions and performances as "spontaneous American-roots music and personal, prayerful hasidic music, by way of avant-garde jazz." This modest man takes for granted that a performer might embody several worlds in his art. Since his divergence from mainstream klezmer in the mid-90s, he has recorded a number of traditional Jewish-inspired albums. In addition, there is his classical klezmer sensation "In the Fiddler's House", which he recorded with Itzhak Perlman in 1996. He has also produced more bluegrass inspired work, including the acclaimed "Andy's Ramble" in 1994. It's unabashedly American music, Statman says, proud of his U.S. roots, and the spirit of individuality, creativity and compassion it embodies. Or it's deeply religious hasidic prayer, intended to embrace his Jewish heritage, he explains in a soft voice. And it's jazz, he'd say, on its lonely search for the spirit of lost worlds. Tickets are on-sale now at www.clubpassim.org.
