Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-12-01 
Klezmer/Balkan jazz, with lots of blues/jazz influences (see #7, 8). Kaplan is an Israel-born saxophonist who's hung out in New York with the Knitting Factory crowd for several years. Most tracks are built on a mid/slow groove but still pack a big and loud punch (see #1, 6).

1*- Midtempo, in kind-of-waltz time
2*- Pretty mandolin intro, stern midtempo march
3*- Happy dance, wacky male vocal
4- Slow
5- Midtempo march with anthemic middle
6*- Slow, w/nice jazzy color from the piano
7*- Fast shuffle
8- Slow, almost blues-rock, w/guitar solo
9- Happy march
