Album Notes
About Ed Goldberg, the Odessa Klezmer Band, and “Who Stole the Kishka?!”

Since 1984, members of the Odessa Klezmer Band have been aimed to make Klezmer music accessible in America. Over the years they’ve performed at numerous fairs, festivals, concerts, weddings and Bar Mitzvahs in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. They’ve also taken their show on the road everywhere from kibbutz’s and army bases in Israel to New York City’s Gracie Mansion and City Hall.

In our newest offering, “Who Stole the Kishka?!” the musicians shaped music from a variety of countries – including Poland, Rumania, Germany, Turkey, Ukraine, Spain, Hungary, Israel, Russia, and NYC’s Lower East Side – to fit traditional Klezmer style. This is the music featured on our ‘Kishka’ Album. Jewish immigrants brought this upbeat, celebratory dance music to America in the late 19th century, and though its popularity faded from the 1930’s to the 70’s, it has re-emerged in recent years as many Jewish Americans explore their roots, and non-Jewish folks began to discover this wonderful emotional music.

Ed Goldberg, a well-known name in the dance-music community, serves as Odessa’s leader and arranges the groups selections. Ed has spent 25 years touring the country with various Polka, Ukranian, and Klezmer bands, and played 4 times in Carnegie Hall. He has performed on more than 150 recordings, four of which were finalists or have received Grammy awards. In “Who Stole the Kishka?!” the computer science professor plays the accordion, piano, bass, and electronic bouzouki. The instrumental band consists of 6 musicians on the recording playing clarinet(of course), sax, trumpet, drums, darbuqa(tabla), assorted percussion instruments, plus two wonderful ladies doing the Yiddish/ Hebrew/English vocals.

This album brings to life the happy foot-dancing music of the Klezmirim musicians. From the beginning Rumanian clarinet doina, polkas, frailachs, to the last Mazel-Tov on a NYC Yiddish Charleston.

Feel the energy and enjoy!

I was looking for a rollicking klez cd to use for an ice-dance program. This music really fills the rink!

Lou Taylor

Great CD--Ed and his group are marvelous--fantastic ethnic music
This CD is so lively it will make you want to jump up and dance. Ed and his Odessa Klezmer Band do a fantastic job of interpreting ethnic music and making it real.

Delightful music. For me, it reminds me of happy days in Chicago when I was much younger.
