CD Reviews

Klezmer? Christmas? YES!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK, you're probably thinking that there can't be klezmer Christmas songs, but the Klezmonauts did it. As their liner notes say "The clash of seemingly incongruous forces can produce surprising and, sometimes brilliant results." From the Yiddish rendition of "Jingle Bells" to the surf-influenced "Little Drummer Boy" to the little bursts of Ennio Morricone in "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," this CD is wonderful! Of course fans of Klezmer and people who like fast, fun songs will like this, but so will some fans of Ska (like the Blue Meanies, who have delved into Klezmer in the past), which sometimes sounds a bit klezmer-ish."
Very cool, good times for all!

"This is such a great CD!! The songs have excellent arrangements, with top notch vocal and instrumental performances. It's so much fun to listen to! A definite holiday must for all :)"
This CD is a blast!

"This CD is great fun to listen to. With wonderful and quirky renditions of favorite and well-known Christmas carols, the Klezmonauts have created a gem! Friends and I listened to track after track with broad smiles. We were continually surprised and pleased with each new song. Many of the tracks incorporate unusual and delightful changes in rhythm and flavor. This is no traditional holiday album, and I recommend it highly to all who enjoy music that is anything but ordinary!"
