|Naftule's Dream is a well-known player on the international circuit, with gigs including the Berlin Jazz Festival, Ashkenaz Festival of New Yiddish Culture in Toronto, Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Bell-Atlantic Jazz Festival, New York Jazz Festival, as well as in clubs throughout the United States and Europe. With this new record "Live in Florence", we are privileged to hear what they themselves call their most memorable live performance ever.
For those with klezmer allergies, have faith! This will heal you!…Parts of the music feature tunes you can sing along with, and other parts travel to heretofore unknown regions of outer jazzspace… This fine live performance most definitely sits atop the heap…
