Lively, touching and richly varied entertainment..Great!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Take Theodore Bikel, the storied folk musician and "Fiddler" Tevye, cantor Morton Shames, the Boston Community Gospel Choir, extraordinarily talented musicians and vocalists of the New England Conservatory, and put them all in the hands of brilliant Klezmer/Jazz- Composer, Musician and Impressario Hankus Netsky and you have a stellar show and the recording "A Taste of Channukah"Wonderful performances are everywhere and newcomer Elizabeth Parvin is a stunning example. Her duet with Bikel, and her solo within it, offer the listener a portal to true vocal brilliance. Her beautiful and expressive soprano mark her as a very bright star on the horizon. Miss Parvin and the other accomplished young performers show how artistic interpretations can be a continuing and fulfilling source of cultural renewal. This CD is a work of art, a lot of fun and a definite winner!"
A tasty audio latka for the ear and soul

"The review below captures the essence of the CD. Recorded at Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory, you may have seen the video broadcast of this performance on PBS. In addition to excellent and stirring renditions of Hanukah favorites, the CD includes the popular SPanish Hanukah song of 8 candle (Ocho Kaandelaros); a humorous Latke Cooking Demonstration by the octogenerian comedian Ms. Chasia Segal; and a blues/gospel rendition of "I Have A Little Dreydl" which will change the way you sing it forever."
A great album!

"I love this album and I'm not Jewish! The music is uplifting and the young performers wonderful. I keep it on the player the entire holiday season."
