Frank London's A Night in the Old Marketplace 

Nightlife Highlights

nh--franklondon.jpg

January 22. Like John Zorn, his frequent collaborator, Grammy winner Frank London has spent much of his career boldly bouncing between and blending avant jazz and Jewish music. Ending a week-long residency at MassMOCA, the trumpeter presents "A Night in the Old Marketplace," his acclaimed theatrical work based on I. L. Peretz's legendary 1907 Yiddish play. All About Jazz describes London's original score, which mixes Jewish, jazz, world, rock, and classical styles, as "a decadent, rich, klezmer-cabaret backdrop that sounds like Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht deep in the bottle after an opium binge." (The Felice Brothers fall in January 15; Red Baraat brings the bhangra funk January 29.) 8pm. $13. North Adams. (413) 662-2111; www.massmoca.org.
