Album Notes
On November 3 2010, Yidn recorded its 2nd and last CD. The following evening, we performed the CD in concert. The next day, Paul left town for Santa Fe; a few months later, Ben moved out to California. The four of us had enjoyed four years of klezmer music-making together in St. Louis.

When we listened to the mixes months later, we were delighted to find that we managed to capture on this CD the kind of klezmer we always wanted to make--vibrant, traditional, yet unmistakably individual.

Boris, our recording engineer, talked to me about promoting the project. "Remember," I told him, "we're not a band with a future; we're a band with a past." I was referring to our recent dispersal, but then I realized the phrase also described the way we're grounded in the klezmer tradition. "A Band with a Past" became the name of the CD.
