Of all the recordings made by Frank London’s Klezmer Allstars this is the third! Frank London spills the beans and comes clean for a celebration of Carnival, which is a celebration in itself and, as he says, no laughing matter. It’s a serious business as he cunningly connives to co-opt over 40 musicians from 8 countries on 4 continents for the ultimate Jewish conspiracy. This original PIRANHA release is a musical travelogue, from frenzied Hasidic pop to sensual Brazilian-Mexican-Yiddish songs of love and angst. Take a deep breath, shake your tuchiss and blow your mind.


"If anything this recording is even better than London`s previous one. The Trademark glorious swing, especially on the more languid tracks, is there as always, but what marks this album out is the sense of cohesiveness: The Concept has become a proper band with its own distinctive sound, honed after many long trips on the road. This is a Band that knows how to bring out the euphoria of a great party and, just as importantly, the drunken melancholy on walking up to the carnage the morning after."

Jonathan Walton, SONGLINES

"A joyful journey of irreverent humor, inside jokes and high-energy, danceable music."
