“Le Dor Va Dor” (BV Haast 0700)

(2000) Modern interpretations, and compositions based on the works of Jewish composers who were active during World War II. Very poignant, with an immediacy for our times. Featured also is guest artist Sovali (Sofie van Lier), vocals.

“Ancient & Newer Roots” (BV Haast CD 1205)

(2006) This is the 2nd in a series of modern arrangements and extended compositions based on works of Jewish composers who have been active since the last world war until the present time. This is poignant, often little known music deserving of much greater hearing. Special guests featured on the CD with our usual Klezmokum musicians are the muti talented Marek Balata (Krakow, Poland) vocals, vocalist Sovali (Sofie van Lier--Amsterdam), Syl R´┐Żllig (Cologne, Germany), vocals, and once more our great, guest clarinetist, Perry Robinson (USA). The CD includes works by Mikhail Gelbart, Beyle Schaechter Gottesman, Matt Darriau, Bill Averbach, and a Chabad Liturgical song “Ata Hivdalta”.

Klez-Edge: “Ancestors, Mindreles, NaGila Monsters”(Tzadik Records TZ8127)
