in the philadelphia music scene, bobby block is a name that seems to go on forever. bobby thrives in many different worlds of music. these days he finds himself performing at many of philadelphia's hotels and country clubs.

"the kings" perform at many sold-out concerts throughout the delaware valley area. watching bobby on stage tells you that he loves performing.

Relax with the soothing sounds of the Klezmer Kings
The majority of American Klezmer seems to be a fusion of two (or more) influences. Common are the Klezmer/Jazz, Klezmer/Swing, Klezmer/Dixieland, Klezmer/Bluegrass, etc. combinations that, unlike their European counterparts which exemplify the more traditional Yiddish melodic stylings, expose the listener to the creative and experimental talents of the American performers and their music. Bobby Block and the Klezmer Kings are in that same category. The listener to this CD, Bobby’s first, is treated to what comes across as a Klezmer/Bossa Nova mixture that seems to be part of an almost alternating line up with more common, yet light hearted, offerings that work – and work quite well – to create a truly enjoyable listening experience.

A warning should also be issued to potential listeners: by the end of Bobby’s Russian Medley you will have the uncontrollable urge to raise a glass and toast "L'Chiam!"

My hope is that the next CD offered by Bobby will feature a few songs that are accompanied by a songstress of equal talent to showcase the Klezmer Kings and their gift of playing wonderful music.
