Klezmer Soul

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Schulte
Swiss klezmer group Kol Simcha, steeped in jazz and classical traditions, brings us a reflective and sublime side of the "klezmer soul." In the rush to join in the energetic Yiddish folk dance, Kol Simcha seek to remind us of the sweetly aching klezmer ballad. Clarinets, bass, piano, string section and percussion are used to bring these tuneful balms to life. This is a collection of the slow pieces from Kol Simcha's first four releases. Klezmer Soul is a beautiful exploration of the plaintive, spiritual side of klezmer.
