Saints & Tzadiks

Saints & Tzadiks

Following on the heels of their Grammy Award-winning work with the Klezmatics, vocalists Susan McKeown and Lorin Sklamberg present Saints & Tzadiks -- a fascinating album combining Yiddish and Irish songs. Culled from the rare archive material and old recordings, McKeown and Sklamberg have selected songs on various themes from the Jewish and Irish traditions: love, death, betrothal, betrayal and the demon drink. The bulk of the Jewish material is drawn from the Ruth Rubin Archive at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, where Sklamberg serves as Sound Archivist. The Irish songs come from both the popular and the ancient Gaelic sean nos traditions. Susan McKeown has recorded ten albums of original and world music and built an impressive career through her many releases, extensive touring and performances on programs such as A Prairie Home Companion, All Things Considered, Mountain Stage and for PBS, Sessions at West 54th and American Masters. Her World Village album Sweet Liberty was nominated for a BBC Folk Music Award. Lorin Sklamberg has been the lead singer of the Jewish American roots band the Klezmatics since its founding in 1986.

Jews With Horns

If Klezmer music resembles American Dixieland, German cabaret and Balkan dance bands, it's because Yiddish musicians of the 1910s and 1920s weren't afraid to borrow from the gentile music around them. Most of the modern klezmer revivalist bands prefer to preserve the hybrid form of the music as it crystallized before the Holocaust, but the Klezmatics think a '90s klezmer band should be able to borrow just as freely as a '20s band. As a result, Jews with Horns features guest appearances by such New York pals as Elvis Costello guitarist Marc Ribot and the members of Betty and Moxy Fruvous. The Klezmatics themselves have played with such diverse acts as Shockabilly, Music from Marlboro, Lester Bowie, John Zorn, LL Cool J, They Might Be Giants and the Zlatne Uste Balkan Brass Band. For all that, the irreverently pun-titled Jews with Horns is definitely a klezmer album. It features Yiddish lyrics, the usual instrumentation of clarinet, fiddle, accordion, trumpet, bass, and drums, and either traditional melodies or traditional-sounding tunes. The modern influence can be heard in the way these acoustic dance rhythms really kick and in the soloists' pursuit of high-energy excitement, even if it involves a little dissonance. --Geoffrey Himes
