What an impressive and origianal collection of Sephardic songs. Bloedow and Charles (of the terrific rock band Elysian Fields) seamlessly inhabit this completely different world. Charles is an impressive and underrated singer and song interpreter whose voice truly soars on these sinuous melodies, Bloedow a brillliant arranger and master of many instruments. This cd should become a world classic, like Buena Vista Social Club, or Cesaria Evora , but don't forget the Tzadik element, there is also a haunting edge the the others don't have. This cd has fast become an all time favorite of mine. Try it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
