El Danzon de Moises

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
A lovely, impressionistic portrait of Cuba's small but tenacious Jewish community by the percussionist Roberto Juan Rodriguez, a member of Marc Ribot's Cubanos Postizos, El Danzón de Moisés features some the leading lights of New York's Radical Jewish Culture gang in a Yiddishized set of stately Latin music. Or is that a Latinized set of mannered Jewish music? Like Cuba's Jewish community, which comprises recent immigrants fleeing the Holocaust as well as Sephardic Jews with roots in Spain and Asia Minor -- and a dose of converts by marriage -- the boundaries are fluid enough to admit both. "El Polaco," the non-derogatory euphemism by which Jews in Cuba are known, sets...

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
A lovely, impressionistic portrait of Cuba's small but tenacious Jewish community by the percussionist Roberto Juan Rodriguez, a member of Marc Ribot's Cubanos Postizos, El Danzón de Moisés features some the leading lights of New York's Radical Jewish Culture gang in a Yiddishized set of stately Latin music. Or is that a Latinized set of mannered Jewish music? Like Cuba's Jewish community, which comprises recent immigrants fleeing the Holocaust as well as Sephardic Jews with roots in Spain and Asia Minor -- and a dose of converts by marriage -- the boundaries are fluid enough to admit both. "El Polaco," the non-derogatory euphemism by which Jews in Cuba are known, sets the tone for the album, with the clarinets of Klezmatic Matt Darriau and former Klezmatic David Krakauer leading a loose-limbed charanga band. The effect is klezmer on the clavé, with tuba, accordion, violin, and cello adding a mournful shtetl sonority to the Latin rhythms. Nostalgic and elegiac, Rodriguez's music conjures a lost world -- and in its subtle mythologizing hints at one that is yet to be. "Shalom a Shango" pairs Oriental melodies with a fiery rumba congo. Now, that's radical Jewish culture.
All Music Guide - David R. Adler
Roberto Juan Rodriguez, the drummer for Marc Ribot's acclaimed Los Cubanos Postizos, leads an eclectic 12-piece ensemble through an exploratory set of originals, seamlessly melding Cuban and Jewish influences. Joining Rodriguez are heavy hitters from the klezmer and avant-garde jazz worlds, including Mark Feldman, David Krakauer, Matt Darriau, Peter Apfelbaum, Craig Taborn, Susie Ibarra, Marcus Rojas, and Brad Jones. The disc is short and sweet under 45 minutes, with hypnotic Afro-Cuban vamps intersecting the old-world sound of strings and clarinets. Occasionally a soloist will emerge -- Marcus Rojas' tuba and Ted Reichman's accordion are especially engaging. The grooves can grow a bit repetitive, although the pace picks up significantly on the finale, "Jerusalem Market."
