There’s something distinctly retrograde about Michael Winograd, and it’s not just that he plays klezmer. It’s that he plays klezmer precisely how it was played 100 years ago. Unlike other popular musicians who’ve melded the music with more contemporary fare — the rapper SoCalled, the punk-slanted star Daniel Kahn — Winograd sticks to the genre’s roots. Now 26, he’s been playing the clarinet since he was 14 and first attended the renowned Catskill summit called KlezKamp.
