[—DON'T MISS THISSPECTACULAR PERFORMANC
ONE CONCERT ONLY!!

Winner of "Golden Orpheus" Grand-Prix, Laureate of Internation
Song Festivals in Italy, France, Israel, Poland Germany and

ber said, Van he play the music?'
And when Francois said I could,
he added, 'Well, there it is!' "
And that's where it has been
for the past two years, as Jeff
Marder and the others travel the
world concertizing.
Mr. Marder has a spirited
sense of camaraderie with the
group's seven other members.
Without question, each has
learned from the other, asking
questions about their respective
backgrounds.
"I found playing with the group
a wonderful growing experience
— End not just musically," says
Mr. Marder.
"As a white Jewish person
growing up in Richboro, I didn't
exactly live in an area that was
ethnically diverse. Playing with
the group, living with them on
tour, has broadened my hori-
zons."
On the horizon are more tours
and performances. But what hap-
pens when one of the concert
dates takes Mr. Marder away
from home during a Jewish hol-
iday?
The road to personal prayer
leads to the heart, says Jeff
Marder. "Two Yom Kippurs ago,

`Music can serve as
a bridge for people
of different
cultures.'

— Jeff Marder

I was in Korea. Just in case, I
took my own Siddur and tallit
with me, in case I had to pray in
my hotel room," he recalls.
Where there's a will, there's a
way. "I ended up finding a syn-
agogue on an Army base in
Seoul," he says.
Being a member of a group so
alien to his own background has
led to some soul-searching. "It has
helped me get in touch with my
own spirituality," says Mr.
Marder.
Not that his sense of Judaism
is strictly traditional.
"My approach to Judaism and
spirituality may be a little un-
orthodox," says Jeff Marder,"as
it is with many other artists.
"My music is my main focus of
spirituality. I feel that most great
works of art are divinely in-
spired."
It is a divine job he has now,
but not his only one. A jazz
maven, Mr. Marder also heads
up his own band, independent of
the Harlem group.
Mr. Marder says he has
changed since signing on with the
Harlem ensemble.
Black-and-white issues have
taken on a new hue.
"I've learned more about
African Americans experiencing
racism," says Mr. Marder,
