Genre: Jazz
FCCS: none
Review: brilliant piece of ethnic jazz fusion, combining the musical tradtions of the Northern European Ashkenazi, and the strong Afro-Latin influences from the Northern African and South American Sephardic communities, Steinitz discovers a rich and significant musical landscape to explore.
