I’m writing to let you know that my newest album Radiant Others is out today!
Radiant Others is the first klezmer CD to feature the trombone as the main lead instrument and Featuring a set of original music and arrangements of traditional klezmer tunes that span the history of the tradition. On Radiant Others, my trombone is supported by the futuristic rhythmic accompaniment of guitarist Nick Millevoi (John Zorn, Desertion Trio, Many Arms), and a few guest appearances from Christopher McDonald (Cuddle Magic) on keyboards.
Radiant Others is available to purchase as a CD and digitally from Bandcamp
Rivki Silver from Hevira says about the album, “Blacksberg… brings a level of soul and depth of emotion that has made me view the trombone with a new level of respect. His expressive playing set within thoughtful and interesting arrangements takes classic pieces and gives them a fresh appeal.”
I hope that you’ll head over to Bandcamp and pick up a copy!
If you’re in Philadelphia or New York, I’ll be playing record release concerts soon featuring, me, Nick, and special guests!
And also, if you’re into podcasts, I’ve released 3 episodes so far of my Radiant Others Podcast. If you like great stories about playing klezmer and being a musician, I think you’ll like this. Listen here, or directly from the posts below.
I want to wish you all a Happy Fall, and an easy fast for Yom Kippur if you observe.
All the best,
