A Mazeldiker Yid
(2001, Oriente Musik RIEN CD 37)

Seth Rogovoy (author of "The Essential Klezmer") calls this CD "wonderful... an album to listen to from beginning to end for the sheer joy and vitality of the music.... This is village-style klezmer, foot-stomping, percussive, and earthy, played with gusto and brio."

Ari Davidow named this CD to the Top 10 list for 2001, writing: "It is hard to imagine anyone else playing such a diversity of music, not only authentically, but with such heart and skill.... This is a band that makes klezmer sexier than blues or jazz." (full review in the Klezmer Shack).

Di Naye Kapelye
(1998, Oriente Musik RIEN CD 17)

Lev Liberman called it 'the mother of all klezmer albums' in the Jewish Review (he said it, not us). And Ari Davidow says: "This isn't klezmer "revival." This is the real thing--or close enough as suffices to open the mind and move the feet today." (album review in the Klezmer Shack).
