Album Remarks & Appraisals:
"Brazilian percussionist-led NY Downtown-based quartet plays John Zorn composed,produced (and released on his Tzadik Records) compositions.
Music is based on Eastern European Jewish folk (klezmer) or it's modern free-jazz flavored version,for years promoted by John Zorn as Masada's Book.Possibly, most interesting moment of all album's music is how organically klezmer roots are melted in Brazil percussion rhythms and how attractive can sound such exotic mix of acoustic Middle East instruments as oud,Latin percussion and jazzy piano/pump organ.
Not revolutionary album, it has many pleasant and beautiful moments on it. World music's legacy with doze of jazz and scent of NY downtown." -JazzMusicArchives
