The “twist” to this Jewish music is a thick dash of avant jazz. A mix of instrumentals and 2 vocals (w/a fine female singer). Clarinet, bass, tenor sax, piano, violin, viola, and percussion. Great strings typically conversing at counterpoint.

1. Slow and almost dirge-like w/ short squeaky bits.
*2. Varying tempos. Starts mid, gets slow, picks up you can hear the folk dance buried underneath. A very cool sound. Ends quirkily.
*3. Down/mid strings that trip headlong. Just strings, wandering around
4. Romanian Yiddish/English ballad. Vocals, warm sax/bass.
*5. Midtempo hora w/lush strings. Rather elegant.
6. Slow, mournful sax then mid. Atmospherically dark.
*7. Percussive bass/sax, mid/slow. Then more driving.
8. Upbeat vocal track. FCC: motherfuckah.
9. Slow, 3 takes on a prayer. Oddly both melodic & harsh.
