Here's what Ari Davidow
had to say on his
Klezmer web site:
California Klezmer is led by
Gerry Tenney, of the well loved
"Lomir Zingen A Yiddish Lid" Global Village CD134).
It also includes Betty
Albert Schreck, the wonderful Jim Rebhan
(also of the Bay Area Ellis Island), and
This band is, essentially, the Bay Area Klezmer
All Stars--and we're talking
stars who go back to the very beginning of the klez revival.
Somewhere in his
correspondence to this web site
David [J. Gray, former clarinetist
for The Klezmorim and California Klezmer]
notes that California Klezmer
from klez, Yiddish folk, and Yiddish Rock 'n' Roll
("In der shtill von den nacht,"
"she's a shande on a honda," etc.) Ya wanna dance? Ya wanna party? These is my homeboys. [accolades, Ari Davidow]
