Album Review
Reviewed 2003-09-02 
Two classically trained violinist brothers, French gypsy-jazz guitar, some accordion. Throw in some great vocals and mix well. Part klezmer, part gypsy, part Balkan. It’s wild, energetic, and addictive. Play it all, folks, this is great stuff!

*1. Mid-tempo folk w/a contemporary, jazzy twist.
*2. An uptempo oom-pah romp.
3. Down/mid-tempo Yiddish folk song.
4. Funky Arabic-influenced. Picks up speed.
*5. Accordion/cimbalom/guitar. Starts slow, gets wicked fast.
6. Slow and pretty w/sweet male vox.
7. Uptempo folk dance. Great jam at the end.
*8. Big oom-pah sound. Bouncy vocals/strings.
9. Dark & dramatic w/big choral effects.
*10. Wacky fun w/tinny strings & accordion.
11. Lyrically orchestral w/a sad feeling.
12. Male vocals, downtempo & quiet. Pretty.
13. (Bonus track) Remixed version of #1. Play #1 instead.

Sept. 2003
