Klezamir plays Eastern European Yiddish pop music, and the musicianship on display in this first recording by the Northampton based band is first rate, especially Jim Armenti’s fevered clarinet playing and Rhoda Bernard’s full-bodied nicely accented vocals (in both Yiddish and English). This is a jazzed-up version of the way this splendid music was performed in the old country. The only drawback – if it can be called one – is the album’s incessant happiness, which makes it difficult to get all the way though in one listening. Then again, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to get up and dance!
-Ed Symkus, the Weekly Tab, Boston

"...this outfit really does know how to light a fire." - Dirty Linen

"hypnotic, wonderful flute... high energy danceability" - Bravo

"This is a band I’d really, really like to see live - they sound like they’d blow everyone off the stage and have a lot of fun doing it! … the piano is unusually tasty, the flute is also quite superb..." - Ari Davidow, klezmershack.com
