Ukrainian Jewish Heritage: Dave Tarras, the Ukrainian-born man who became known as "the Benny Goodman of klezmer" - Nash Holos Ukrainian Roots Radio
This book by American klezmer Yale Strom chronicles the life of the individual most responsible for the development of a uniquely American style of Jewish klezmer music. From 1925 until his death in 1989, Dave Tarras influenced several generations of klezmer musicians, as well as well-known jazz legends such as Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. He will no doubt continue to influence generations to come.
