John Zorn's Book Of Angels Volume Five(Masada Book Two) - Balan - The Cracow Klezmer Band (USA 2006)

Masada Book Two

I have struggled to give this one as much attention as I should due to being constantly drawn to the next volume in this series. So here we have a real Klezmer band interpreting John Zorn's Klezmer inflected Masada compositions. It's a good set, the band are hot and the music interesting, although I could do without the strange vocal noises that permeate some of the tracks.  Another good and enjoyable album but one that doesn't draw me back as much as others. Rating 3.5/5.

Yer out o' yer mind! This is one of the best ones in the series! "Haniel" is amazing!

Dude, the whole series is pretty amazing, but we all have different tastes. I'm still 2 volumes away from the best volume in this series.
