This phenomenal and utterly unique 10-piece ensemble has audiences dancing in the aisles as well as leaping from their seats in thunderous applause. Extraordinary artists with a brand new sound—trust us, you've never heard anything like it!—Abraham Inc. features an unprecedented collaboration between three cultural visionaries: David Krakauer, champion of klezmer music and world-class chamber clarinetist; legendary funk trombonist and arranger Fred Wesley, prized for his work with James Brown and George Clinton; and hip-hop renegade and beat architect Socalled. Add a three-piece horn section led by Wesley, as well as musicians and rappers who collaborate frequently with Krakauer and Socalled, and the result is "music that cooks from the opening note!" (Prague Post).
