Overview

Blood Oranges

With each performance, the klezmer quartet Brave Old World creates its music anew, alive in the klezmer tradition of improvisation and spontaneity. Ten years ago, vocalist and violinist Michael Alpert, piano and accordion master Alan Bern, clarinetist Kurt Bjorling, and virtuoso Stuart Brotman, who plays bass, percussion, and cimbalom, came together, and BLOOD ORANGES takes their music even further beyond the confines of genre. Though deeply rooted in Yiddish/Jewish tradition, pieces such as "Wailing World," "Homeland," "Night," and "Prayer" expand upon these roots with improvisational approaches to rhythm, form, and harmony. The tunes ring familiar and strikingly new at the same moment. Arranged as duets, trios, and quartets, the album's songs evolved live in the studio -- and their energy gives the listener a front row seat on the vibrant continuity of tradition.
