The 4TH WARD AFRO-KLEZMER ORCHESTRA plays exactly what the name promises, a merger of Western and African rhythms and Klezmer-influenced song styles laid down by some of the best jazz hands in Atlanta.

Under the direction of composer/trumpeter Roger Ruzow, the 10-piece ensemble barrels through original arrangements of traditional and exotic sounds. With so many players, 4WAKO features members of dozens of acts, including Noot d'Noot, Cadillac Jones and Gold Sparkle Band.

The group features Colin Bragg (guitar), Chris Case (keyboard), Ben Davis (tenor sax), Jeff Crompton (alto sax / clarinet), Ben Gettys (bass), Bill Nittler (baritone sax / clarinet), Keith Leslie (drums), Blake Williams (trombone) and Roger Ruzow (trumpet).

If you didn't get a chance to witness their debut at Eyedrum a few weeks back, the group is convening  once again, this time at The Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge at 664 N. Highland Ave. this Saturday night (Sept. 13 at 9:00 p.m. Admission is $5 and Jude Stevens (A.K.A. Pete DeLorenzo of Gringo Star) opens the show.
