Andy Biskin is a clarinetist and composer with a broad range of interests. In addition to leading several ensembles in the New York area, he has composed scores for film, dance, and theater. Born and raised in Texas, Biskin studied music and anthropology at Yale and later worked as an assistant to folklorist Alan Lomax. His music, scored for the traditional New Orleans front line of clarinet, trumpet, and trombone, recalls early jazz and social music, but with sudden shifts in unexpected directions. Biskin's compositions have been compared to Raymond Scott, Charles Mingus, Charles Ives, Carla Bley, and Lawrence Welk....
