cd cover Naftule's Dream
Live in Florence (Innova Records)

The record label says:

Naftule's Dream is a well-known player on the international circuit, with gigs including the Berlin Jazz Festival, Ashkenaz Festival of New Yiddish Culture in Toronto, Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Bell-Atlantic Jazz Festival, New York Jazz Festival, as well as in clubs throughout the United States and Europe. With this new record "Live in Florence", we are privileged to hear what they themselves call their most memorable live performance ever.
"The most remarkably flexible band of musical renegades to come along since John Zorn's Naked City." Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes (2002)

"(They) stretch the limits of densely composed and then freely jammed-out music of deep emotional resonance. Itıs a crazy-ass circus one minute, a funeral procession another, and everything in between the rest of the time." Richard Gehr, The Village Voice

"Think sophisticated little-big-band orchestrators like Charles Mingus and Carla Bley applying themselves to Jewish music." The Boston Phoenix

"uniquely American... Each piece captures both the majesty of the earth and a real feel for the locale...a blissful travelogue." - Revue

"truly amazing...[we were] besieged with phone calls wondering what it was." - WFMU

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
