 Re: Advice on playing Klezmer?

I play klezmer, and just finished a run of Spamalot, which has an extended klezmer clarinet solo (you can’t succeed on Broadway if you haven’t any Jews.

Listen to davey Tara’s, and Naftule Brandwein. Also listen to current klezmer clarinetists, David Krakhauer and Andy Statman (who received Daveys clarinets, upon Daveys passing).

I use scoops into notes, wide vibrato and loosen my embouchure to get a more honky tonk sound.

Also, Broadway is not a klezmer gig. Be judicious in your use of klezmer style. Fit the sound and style to what’s happening on stage. When Tevye bids farewell to his daughter (Far From the Home I Love) is not the time to play klezmer, as an example.
