THE CRAKOW KLEZMER BAND : KLEZMER RHAPSODY [2007]

Οι προστατευόμενοι του John Zorn The Crakow Klezmer Band ήταν ένα Πολωνικό σχήμα που συνδύαζε το klezmer [παραδοσιακή μουσική των Εβραίων Ασκενάζι] με την αβανγκάρντ και την τζαζ. Τους ακούμε σε μια σύνθεση του ακορντεονίστα – leader Jaroslaw Bester. Aπό το live άλμπουμ Remembrance του 2007 – τελευταίο πριν απ’ τη μετονομασία τους σε Bester Quartet.

John Zorn’s protégés
The Crakow Klezmer Band was a Polish outfit which combined klezmer [Jewish Ashkenazi musical tradition] with avant-garde and jazz.
We hear a composition by their leader – accordionist Jaroslaw Bester. From the live album,
Remembrance of 2007, last one before changing their name to Bester Quartet.

    This reminded me a bit of Gogol Bordello. I enjoyed it.

      In terms of sound maybe, but Gogol Bordello’s got nothing on these people. I must say I don’t like GB. One of the [minor] reasons is that Gogol’ s one of my all-time favorite writers.
      Thank you!

        You’re welcome! I was curious to get your take on Gogol Bordello.
