A Hastings native, Jake Shulman-Ment is at the helm of a new generation of Klezmer performers. He has toured, recorded, and taught at home and internationally both as a solo performer and with many groups. He has spent two decades traveling and living in Eastern Europe, learning traditional violin styles and researching old Jewish music from master fiddlers.

In the spring of 2020, Joel Arnow (drums), Paul Orbell (guitar) and Craig Aiken (bass), started playing masked, socially distanced jam sessions. They had played together countless times in various groups and projects, but never as a trio. They decided to record their sessions. The newly minted trio will be releasing its debut album in early 2022. The music mixes influences of jazz, folk and modern popular music, with an improvisational edge reminiscent of Medeski Martin and Wood, Wayne Krantz, and Bill Frisell.
