Klezmer Jewish music absorbs many musical influences from Germany through to Greece and the Middle East. Once the Klezmer arrived in New York the music incorporated jazz. Jonathan arrived in New Zealand in 1974 from New York and composed Klez in 1984 for a jam session with two violinist friends.

Jonothan Besser arranged his popular gypsyish Klezmer tune Klez for Jade String Quartet in 2007.
