Naftule's Dream

Beautiful, moving and aclectic - this talented band plays a fusion of improv, jazz and traditional Klezmer. From adventurous originals to surprising reinterpretations of traditional Jewish classics, Naftule's Dream draws on the exotic modalism of Eastern Europe, the improvising aesthetic of new jass and the hard-edged rhythms of rock, Middle Eastern music and Klezmer. Search for the Golden Dreydl, their new album on John Zorn's Tzadik label, is already receiving national acclaim. "Absolutely intriquing splendid instrumental work. Glenn Dickson makes his clarinet sing throughout. his compositions effectively bridge the gap between past styles and modern concepts," --Option. ".klez as it would be played by the Greatful Dead if they had horns," --Whole Earth Review. The group has created a stir with regular performances at The Knitting Factory in New York City and at the International Ashkenaz Festival of New Yiddish Culture in Toronto. Members include Glenn Dickson, clarinet; Pete Fitzpatrick, guitar; David Harris, trombone; John Manning, tuba; Michael McLaughlin, accordian; and Eric Rocenthal, drums.
