An all-out klezmer-funk dance party.
An unprecedented collaboration between three cultural visionaries: David Krakauer, champion of klezmer music and world-class clarinetist; legendary funk trombonist and arranger Fred Wesley, celebrated for his work with James Brown and George Clinton; and hip-hop renegade and beat architect Socalled – Abraham Inc. heralds a time when boundaries are eroding, mutual respect is presumed, and musical traditions can hit with full force without concession or appropriation. Backed by a three-piece horn section led by Wesley plus musicians who collaborate frequently with Krakauer and Socalled – and the result is an all-out klezmer-funk dance party!
Abraham Inc.’s debut release Tweet Tweet peaked at #1 in Funk and #1 in Jewish and Yiddish Music (first album to top these two genres?), and #35 in music sales on Amazon. It reached #7 in Jazz on Billboard and was featured at #40 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart for fastest sellers.
