The Cracow Klezmer Band is one of the most passionate, virtuosic and creative bands in the New Jewish Renaissance and with each new release they just keep getting better and better. For their fourth CD on Tzadik they collaborate with John Zorn to paint a surreal vision of the work of Polish writer Bruno Schulz, whose art and stories continue to fascinate and perplex the world. Zorn's evocative compositions and Jarek Bester's sparkling arrangements blend perfectly, capturing the lyrical fantasy of Schulz's expressive symbolism. Featuring beautiful vocalist Grazyna Auguscik on two tracks, Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass is a CD of driving rhythms, soaring lyricism, textures, moods and fantastic colors that you will return to again and again.
