Jack Kessler has been called a one-man force of nature in Jewish music. (He has also been called the Jewish Sun Ra; and he claims to have been called late for dinner). He sang Jewish liturgical music as a Hazzan (Cantor) for twenty years before he decided that he prefers singing with a band. Jack is musical director, vocalist, and composer-arranger for Klingon Klez, which describes itself as “good old-fashioned, heartwarming, foot-stompin’ fun-for-the-whole family klez/funk fusion from another planet.” He also directs Atzilut, a ten-member ensemble that performs Concerts for Peace, featuring Arab and Jewish musicians in concert together. An excerpt from one review of Azilut proclaims, “Cantor Jack Kessler’s deep, resonant voice, playing against Shaheen’s violin, and the entire ensemble, is amazing! The result is music that gets deeper the longer that you listen, but that is also a relaxing pleasure the first time through.”
