The Cracow Klezmer Band - Sanatorium Under The Sign Of The Hourglass (Tzadik 2005)

More From Tzadik.
The John Zorn Discography.

This one should belong in the John Zorn Discography as he composed all the songs here. Not sure if these are Masada related compositions but this set would sit particularly well in the Book of Angles series.
These guys really let rip on many of these tracks with some of this being a really bouncy set of uptempo Klezmer numbers played extraordinarily well and the rest being more slower atmospheric numbers. Overall a pretty good set although I am enjoying the faster songs much more as the album feels like its' petering out as it slows down. Again, recommended for fans of Zorn's Masada music. Rating 3/5.
