Andy Statman, clarinetist and mandolin player extraordinaire, worked with the Ethan Chessin's UW Klezmer Band on Chava, a tune Klez Chaos also plays. You'll hear the group improving as they incorporate Andy's suggestions. The instruments represented were tuba, accordion, piano, trombone, banjo, cello, tambourine, clarinets and trumpet. This 45 minute class is quite instructive with comments all of us could also take to heart. Andy joins in occasionally on mandolin and clarinet.
