Time Out says

At this spirited holiday concert, The Jazzukkah Project will perform fresh updates on Hanukkah classics, led by acclaimed bassist Giliad Abro.

Putting a sonic spin on Hanukkah classics, The Jazzukkah Project is holding a spirited concert to celebrate the annual Festival of Lights at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research (15 W 16th St) on Sunday, December 10.

The evening will begin with a story written by Isaac Bashevis Singer and read by Brooklyn-born actress Eleanor Reissa. Then the tunes begin, led by acclaimed bassist Giliad Abro and featuring the talents of jazz pianist Tom Oren, percussionist Alon Benjamini and singer-songwriter Elana Rozenfeld. With some songs in English, some in Hebrew and some instrumental, the concert will include jazzy renditions of familiar holiday classics (think a bebop version of “I Have a Little Dreidel” or “Hanukkah, Oh, Hanukkah” infused with some Afro-Cuban grooves).
