O’s Notes: The Klez Dispensers are Susan Watts (vocals, t), Alex Kontorovich (cl, as), Amy Zakar (v, vocals), Heather Chiscaden Versace (b, vocals), Audrey Betsy Welber (ts, as), Ben Holmes (t), Adrian Banner (p) and Gregg Mervine (d). Klezmer fans can get excited with this release. There are seven Yiddish theatre songs, a medley of traditional Eastern European songs and five original klezmer compositions. The band is polished and precise delivering all of the emotions and nuances of the music with vocals that are spot on. Even if you are not a klezmer fan, you’ll appreciate the enthusiasm of this performance.
