In the past several years, more and more Jewish artists have been finding expression in the blending of Jazz and Klezmer. Searching For the Golden Dreydl is one of the year's most exciting additions to this dynamic new music. From adventurous originals to surprising reinterpretations of traditional Jewish classics, Boston-based Naftule's Dream has created an instrumental music of passion and intensity. Fiery improvisation weaves in and out of complex arrangements in a style reminiscent of Mingus at his best. Very much in keeping with their namesake Naftule Brandwein, this century's greatest and most controversial Klezmer clarinetist, this is music that keeps you at the edge of your seat.
