Table Pounding Music presents A Benefit Concert for the American Civil Liberties Union/New York Civil Liberties Union featuring Abraham Inc (featuring David Krakauer, Fred Wesley and Socalled) and "Where Worlds Collide" (featuring South African pianists Kathleen Tagg and Andre Petersen).

Event produced by David Krakauer and Kathleen Tagg.

Abraham Inc ia 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. Their CD Tweet Tweet peaked at #1 in Funk and #1 in Jewish and Yiddish Music, and #7 in Jazz on Billboard. 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!

The Kathleen Tagg /Andre Petersen Piano Duo brings together two of South Africa's most celebrated pianists, one eclectic classical and one jazz artist, in a unique collaboration.
