Gerry Tenney & Betty Albert Schreck
Lomir Zingen a Yiddish Lid
(Let’s Sing a Yiddish Song)
(Global Village Music, CD 134, New York, 1988)

“Although many of the songs on this recording are intended for kids, the singers manage to make this an album that everyone will want to listen to. Consider this the obviation of “shmaltz.” Yes, Virginia, Yiddish folk songs can be sung as though they are fun! Needless to say, the Bay Area’s best musicians showed up to provide backup, and have a grand time.”
(Ari Davidow, www.klezmershack.com)

Features Joel Rubin on C clarinet
