about

The Sway Machinery Brooklyn, New York

The horn-driven quintet Sway Machinery draws on a mélange of influences—from Latin jazz to Ashkenazi cantorial tropes—to forge a dance-friendly, at times ecstatic sound. The group, founded by the guitarist and singer Jeremiah Lockwood, the grandson of the esteemed cantor Jacob Konigsberg, melds Lockwood’s Jewish musical roots with a wide-ranging interest in world music.
