Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar, NYC, Sep 9

New York Jewish Music and Heritage Festival, 2004
Art Bailey's Orkestra Popilar
Art Bailey (accordion); Yaeko Miranda (violin); Brandon Seabrook (mandolin); Nick Cudahy (bass). Bailey's concept of Jewish music owes more to Romanian and Hungarian Gypsy string ensembles than to the more familiar clarinet and drums based klezmer bands. The repertoire is a mix of early 20th century Jewish fiddle pieces, original compositions, improvisation, and features material originally recorded by Romanian-born cymbalom master and Lower East Side restaurateur, Joseph Moskowitz.
