The Klein Party

First assembled to bring joy to Craig & Sara's annual Jannukah Party, the Klein Party explores Top One Million songs from all the Old Countries. This clarinet-saxophone-trumpet-accordion-ukulele-bass sextet with vocalists, brings a jazz sensibility to klezmer freylachs and bulgars, Yiddish theatre music,

gypsy dance music, sentimental Italian tunes,

heart-rending fados, novelty Americana, Duke Ellington classics, movie themes, tangos, country-and-western favorites,

Japanese folks songs, the rich book of Phillip Johnston,

hip-moving cha-cha-chas, and the occasional opera aria.

We're all living in Seattle in the beautiful Pacific Northwest,

but look forward to playing elsewhere in other beautiful places.
