5.0 out of 5 stars Mosaic means... April 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title "Mosaic Persuasion", Metropolitan Klezmer's second album, is a very apt "double entendre", "mosaic" here being intended both in the meaning of referring to the laws of Moses(in other words, 'Mosaic means never having to say you're Jewish') and in that of a multi-faceted image, where a large number of individual elements combine to form a larger image. This metaphor could hardly be more appropriate to describe the eclectic music of Metropolitan Klezmer with its wonderful cosmopolitan blend of traditional klezmer tunes, Chassidic nigunim and khosidls, Yiddish song, Balkan and Greek and Sephardic elements, as well as jazz.
They again present a strong, thoroughly consistent album. The arrangements are flawless and even elegant, the musicianship and virtuosity impeccable. Throw in superb ensemble playing and a great deal of exuberance and flair, as well as a truly cosmopolitan instrumental palette with excellent "doubling" by all members, and you've got an outstandingly versatile band. The presence of members of another Eve Sicular led band, the all female The Isle of Klezbos, complements Metropolitan Klezmer seamlessly. Since their debut album, founder/leader/drummer Eve Sicular has fine-tuned the delicate balance between her masterful and inventive, stylish drumming and the need to hold back so as not to dominate the music even further, to the point of perfection. An incredible feat, for which Ms. Sicular can't be given sufficient credit and kudos. Much kudos is also due for the fairly extensive and even prominent use of the bass clarinet on "Mosaic Persuasion" - and so wonderfully effective it is, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Untrained voices off key November 20, 2011
By Maddy
Format:Audio CD
If good music got credit for tempo, this would be a great cd. The tracks would be great for a silent film cops and robbers chase. Unfortunately the off key voice of Ms. Karpel ruins it. The melody is sung as if on an American Idol. Sometimes,one has to learn it as a child or have heard it as a child to understand the song. Ms. Karpel's voice has such a limited range that it makes it impossible for her to sing the songs on this CD. She was off key and flat so often. She probably doesnt have a clue of how these songs were once song. I saw this band live and heard the same bad vocals. My mother sand ditties from Poland to me so I have a sense of how beautiful these songs could have sounded in better hands. However, Eve Sicular is talented as the drums and was the band leader.
