Yiddish Inspired Jazz?

1 12 2008

BBC.com has a pretty cool audio slideshow up about how the Yiddish language inspired New York Jazz. Radio 3’s Dennis Marks interviewed Zalmen Mlotek, the Artistic Director of Folksbiene, about how the Yiddish language influenced New York jazz and the legendary Gershwins. You can check out the audio slideshow here.
