Your Daily Lick: Aaron Novik

The Samuel Suite/Dancing Into One (Evander Music)



A split record that showcases the composition skills of local clarinetist and bandleader Aaron Novik. The Samuel Suite, a heartfelt tribute to Novik's grandfather, borrows Jewish scales to form Bach-style chorales. Dancing Into One was commissioned by Orange County's Saint Joseph Ballet and performed by San Francisco klezmer band the Yiddiots.
