Debra Kreisberg and East Harlem Trio at Allerton Library
Debra Kreisberg has made her mark as the captivating star clarinetist of veteran NYC klezmer bands Metropolitan klezmer and The Isle of Klezbos, but music insiders know she is much more than that. For many years, Debra's versatility has been showcased in performances with award-winning NYC-based artists such as the Latin jazz ensemble Los Mas Valientes, the hard-driving Bronx Conexion Latin-Jazz Big Band, renowned singer-songwriters such as Natalie Merchant and Jill Sobule, and more. Her lyrical, pure tone have been compared to jazz saxophone legends Johnny Hodges and Paul Desmond and her virtuosic technique and thorough command of bebop melodic vocabulary have been compared to Sonny Stitt.
The East Harlem trio includes Debra's equally accomplished colleagues, Steve Newman, piano and Dave Hofstra, bass, coming together to perform a one-hour concert of jazz standards and originals.
Allerton Library, 2740 Barnes Avenue
