Bridging jazz, klezmer, rock, and groove, Big Brooklyn carries a progressive and inviting presence, exploring beautiful melodies while defining new boundaries. Awarded Semi-Finalist positions in the 2022 UK Songwriting Contest for multiple compositions on their new album, Everyone Everywhere, as well as being a jazz finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for a song on their first album, Purpose, this 5-piece group captivates audiences with a unique depth of passion in expressive melodies and harmonies from jazz and beyond, touching on the inseparable exultation and pathos of the klezmer sound, all interwoven over a fabric of jazz and groove that pulls all stops. Big Brooklyn was formed by Willie and Melody Dornfeld. Band members include: Melody Dornfeld – Clarinet & Bass Clarinet, Luke Soasey – Tenor & Soprano Saxophones, Aaron Summerfield – Guitar, Jo Asker - Bass, and Willie Dornfeld - Drums. www.bigbrooklynmusic.com “Serious talent in an eclectic and unique package.” -Avogadro’s Number, Live Music Venue “With a sound that laughs and sobs at the same time, Dornfeld on clarinet is a master of nuance. Her reed speaks in a universal language that needs no translation. These outstanding musicians have created a sonic supernova.” –Debbie Burke, Jazz Author
