Format: Audio CD
On the strength of their Bulka's Song CD, I purchased Pintele Yid. Whereas Bulka's Song has some truly astounding pieces that carry the CD and reward the purchaser, Pintele Yid is more even across all the tracks. As with all Minnesota Klezmer Band efforts, the musicianship is nothing short of world class. Joe Vass' compositions again reward with engaging hooks and soulful turns. If you enjoy 'show tunes' several of the tracks have that feel to them, with strong narrative elements. Songs like Book of Ruth and The World to Come pull at your heart and mind together in a manner that makes most popular music seem goofy by comparison. Overall, the fusing of Jewish traditional, jazz variants and the blues creates a flavor that is the trademark of this band. This is a very very satisfying album.
