Giora the magician

"Giora has the ability to make his clarinet sing...songs of joy, and songs of woe. He gets sounds one wouldn't think possible, and with so much quote him: "I use the clarinet to express myself, to transfer to others my inner voice".Classically trained in Buenos Aires, Argentina (his birthplace), he has become the "undisputed King of Klezmer". On this 1985 recording, Giora plays clarinet and bass clarinet, with a small back-up band consisting mostly of guitars, double bass, and percussion...the total running time is 62:05.Of the 15 tracks, favorites are "The Mothers in Law" and "Halaka"...track # 14 is a wonderful Gershwin medley, and how he transforms this very American music into Jewish soul music is a marvel. To quote Leonard Bernstein: "Long live Giora, his clarinet and his Soul Music. He bridges many gaps...generational, cultural, and social, and he does it with consumate artistry"."
Great klezmer music!

"On many of its tracks, you need to be tied down not to start moving in time to the music. It's great! As my mother would have said, "Try it, you'll like it!" -- maybe with a "buballa" thrown in.

This is the first review I've written, but I was enjoying the music so much, I had to take the time to share my joy."
