Oy to the World: A Klezmer Christmas. OK, klezmer isn't exactly jazz, but then this isn't exactly klezmer either. Think of it as Santa meeting the fiddler on the roof-a kind of ecumenical, to say the least, approach to Christmas, conceived and arranged by Chicago jazz pianist-arranger Paul Libman. The slant Libman comes up with on the pieces...is amazing, the joy of Christmas in an Eastern European setting. And his re-harmonization and recasting of this eminently familiar music creates a perspective that is utterly different, yet utterly fascinating. Sometimes hilarious funny...sometimes deeply touching, it is the perfect solution for the mixed-religion family that can't decide whether to play Christmas carols of Hanukkah songs.
