London co-founded the Klezmatics, the Hasidic New Wave, and other groups, and was called "the person most responsible for pushing the Klezmer revival in the direction of Rock and World Music." Expanding from his work on the Tzadik release "Scientist at Work" (and his years with Jaki Byard's Apollo Stompers), London's Shekhina Big Band is the first group of its kind, radically fusing Jewish music and big band Jazz.
