Nussbaum - Smidl - Ougaard : "Trio Klezmer"
Kinky Klezmer Records KKR 007
Channe Nussbaum, Mette Smidl and Oyvind Ougaard have selected 11 tracks from
their large live repertoire for this CD, which is a charming addition to the
world music field.
The concept is simple: violin, accordion and vocals blend in sentimental ballads
and speedy polkas based on the ancient forces that musicians throughout centuries
found in themselves when playing live at celebrations.
While the emphasis is on Yiddish songs the CD includes three completely new
songs written by Channe Nussbaum.
A highlights include a longer instrumental suite, featuring traditional klezmer
violin, Hungarian and Rumanian fiddling with brilliant moments of Mette Smidl's
The old hit "Bei mir bistu shein" is affectionately
rendered in a traditional Eastern European light.
The CD ends with a song from a Danish movie from the thirties, “Without
love, you haven't lived your day”, with a colour of tone that is not entirely
far from Klezmer.
