Association of Jewish Libraries
February/March 2008:

Levin, Leib & Piano Trio. From Nigun to Klezmer. Portland, Or.: CD Baby, 2006. 1 Compact Disc.
"This is an exquisite collection of eight short cuts: four nigunim, interspersed with a version of "Bei mir bist du shein," a freilach, a klezmer dance piece, and a slightly longer "Dance of the reb­bitzen" by the late, respected composer George Perlman. The trio arrangements are ideal for the soulful, melodic nigunim as well as the more joyous freilachs. All of the playing is master­ful.. the piano work of Yaron Gershovsky, the musical director of the Manhattan Transfer.... The violinist at the heart of this work, Leib Levin, shows tremendous understanding of Jew­ish music. There is no showiness here; the music takes center stage. The jazz arrangements achieve a perfect fusion, avoiding the awkwardness that so often accompanies at­tempts to inject jazz into Jewish music. ... The nigunim are played with a particular reverence and appreciation, and the violin substitutes well for the wordless voice. It is suitable for all Jewish libraries that are collecting recorded music."
