Rainlore adds even more - updated UK calendar coming

Richard Sharma posted the following to the Jewish-Music mailing list:

There's a whole bunch of new album reviews up on Rainlore's World of Music ( www.rainlore.demon.co.uk ), plus a profile of fab Aussie band Monsieur Camembert who recently won another ARIA Award for their current album, Absynthe (reviewed earlier), plus other bits of news etc. - see


Reviews are of two more albums by superb Dutch Yiddish song duo Mariejan van Oort and Jacques Verheijen, "Brikele - A Concert of Yiddish Songs" plus their latest hot-off-the-presses "Mayn Fayfele - Songs of Gebirtig", a fab tribute to and musical portrait of Mordekhay Gebirtig. For something completely different, there's The Amazing Assaf's "Explicit Lifestyles" and "Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't". Assaf's truly amazing and will here be more familiar as the percussionist of Daphna Sadeh's new all-star Voyagers line-up. Also familiar from the same line-up will be multi-woodwind phenomenon Stewart Curtis, whose albums with Stewart Curtis' K-Groove, "Smoked Salmon Salsa", and with the Stewart Curtis Trio, "Saracubana - The Stewart Curtis Trio Plays B.B. Cooper" are reviewed.

A "silent" update to the Jewish Music UK Calendar ( www.rainlore.demon.co.uk/JewishMusic/JMUKCalendar.html ) is due to follow in the next few days - so if you have any forthcoming UK dates of any kind of Jewish musical events, please contact me off-list ASAP with as much detail as poss.
