It has about 45 minutes of dance music, plus some other nice things you may not have heard. In response to comments that some of our recordings were too fast for a lot of dancers, I have digitally slowed down a few of them. Without changing the pitch!
Isn't science wonderful?! Following is info on the songs:. Starts slower, speeds up. Eleno mome Bulgarian -- Vocal, with clarinet and accordion. Not as fast as on Jove Malaj Mome - NAMA Orchestra - NAMA 2 2. Erev ba Israeli -- Popular dance tune, sung in 3-part counterpoint. Moyshele, mayn fraynd Yiddish -- Nostalgic song about childhood, trumpet solo by Dan Sheehy. This is the original Yiddish version, which I have never seen or heard anywhere else.
Didn't work! Bando da lua guitar solo by Dan Ratkovich, percussion by Eytan. This is the official song of Pasadena CA not widely known! With the famous Ervin Rouse exhibition tune. Three-part vocal, piano, and Loretta Kelley on Sailor Man - Joe Vitale - Plantation Harbor flying fast fiddle!
This is old style folk and klezmer music, played on acoustic instruments, with no rock fusion or whatever. CD length is nearly 74 minutes.
Not a CD-R. I also have a similarly wonderful CD made by my band of the last 20 years in Ann Arbor. This CD came with extensive liner notes -- words, translations, history, photos. Mostly Balkan folk dances, with dance syllabus by Dick Crum.
