Album Notes
The Jazz Drama Program was developed by a jazz musician and a schoolteacher. Meeting the need for high quality, age-appropriate material in tune with today's youth, Nora's Ark is a hilarious retelling of the biblical tale. Set on a modern cruise ship, Nora and company rescue animals from the Bronx Zoo. The show captures the challenges of growing up, the desire to be free, and is rich with lessons of cooperation in the the ultimate struggle for survival.

This recording features The Eli Yamin Quintet with Eli Yamin, piano, Mark McGowan, trumpet, Chris Byars, tenor saxophone/flute, Pat 'O Leary, bass and Stefan Schatz, drums.

Brooklyn Youth Chorus Jazz Singers with Sofia D'Alessandro, Ariella De Los Santos, Daniel Epelbaum, Talia Fuchs, Raquel Klein, Anna Lentz, Isaac Lertola, Alice Markham-Cantor, Solomon McDougall, Jake Montagnino, Emma Orme, Nadege Philogene, Roselise Russo, Christina Santa Maria, Bolivia Williams
