Product Description

Amazon.com

Formed in 1987 by trumpeter-composer David Buchbinder, the Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band has captivated audiences throughout North America and Europe and has become something of an icon in the ensemble's native Toronto. Based in traditional Yiddish klezmer music of Eastern Europe married to modern elements of popular music, the Flying Bulgars' sound is an outrageous brand of jazz-folk that is at once celebratory, irreverent, and grandly stimulating. Tsircus, Yiddish for "circus," is the band's fourth recording and finds the group digging deeper into its Jewish roots while reaching well into the next century. The music is expectedly theatrical: strings weep and soar, horns tittle and blare, accordion creaks and dances. Vocals range from aggressive narrative to tender verse to boisterous refrain while piano and drums create an intriguing interplay of syncopated rhythm and melody. A rollicking good time, Tsircus is all at once the sounds of a wild family reunion, a wedding, a wake, and a union meeting crossed with a carnival. --Paige La Grone

I bought this CD sight unseen, only by looking at the byline. And I can already tell it's one of the best CD's I ever purchased. I've never had any Klezmer music, having only seen a Klezmer band on New's Year's Eve (in Santa Cruz). OY VEY! You don't need to be Jewish to appreciate this stuff! C'mon people! Get out and BUY IT! You won't regret this purchase. (N0, I don't know the band personally). If you enjoy Miles Davis, chances are, you'd like this too.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ellen M. Falbowski on September 13, 2004
Format: Audio CD
I love the klezmer style of syncopation in minor keys -- it seems to say, "Life is tough all over, but what the hell, let's dance." Tsirkus takes the art form to a whole new level. I not only hear and feel the music -- I also see it. I wish I were a choreographer so I could design a dance for the title piece: full of tension and longing, yet brazenly confident -- the dark, beckoning side of the circus life. The clarinet and saxophone solos are fantastic, and David Wall's voice is exquisite.
