Ty Citerman’s band, Bop Kabbalah, released their debut CD at The Little Shul in South Philadelphia, PA.
Guitarist and bandleader Ty Citterman says of the group:
“The quartet is my newest project, and it’s my take on Jewish themed composition meets improvisation. The band plays far-reaching, kinetic, lyrical music that takes some of the language of klezmer,modal nigunim, jazz, rock and 21st century concert music…and then twists and recontextualizes it. It’s not really what you’d hear in most synagogues or at most weddings, but of course, those aren’t the only places to hear Jewish music!
The group does however draw on my Jewish life and my years of experience playing secular and religious music.”
Bop Kabbalah is:
Ty Citerman, guitar
Adam D Gold, drums
Douglas Yates filling in for Ken Thomson, bass clarinet
