Porn for brass lovers or the breath of life - Welcome to a real new world order. This is a multiculti brass orgy, reuniting three traditions which share a common Middle Eastern root. Thousands of years after the fall of the tower of Babel , Jews, Moors and Gypsies finally reunite! Frank London's Klezmer Brass Allstars meet up with Serbian king of the trumpet Boban Markovic and his Orkestar and the amazing brass blasters from Cairo, the Hasaballa Brass band, to celebrate the rediscovered traits of their common past in mystic knowledge - and lung power. The playing is every bit as shiny as the instruments and though the material may lean heavily on the Jewish tradition, it frequently slips off down all manner of weird and wonderful avenues. An international marriage made in heaven where all the guests speak the universal language of music - inna brass band stylee!


"The tracks where they play together with no special guests are full of thousands of years of tradition but still sound as light and airy as a penthouse apartment. Suffice it to say that you really have to hear this record to know what I'm talking about. It's worth owning and loving and treasuring, and again proves that Piranha is one of the best and most ambitious world music labels in our part of the universe."

"Sounds like a damn wild party."

"This is a fun CD that makes you both think and dance. You can't really ask for more."

"Now dat's a trumpet!"

"For Frank London, the house band in the Garden of Eden is stacked with brass, lots of brass: trumpets, trombones, tubas, percussion, and maybe, just maybe, one clarinet for good measure. And it's always a party there, too."
