Metropolitan Klezmer's fifth album Mazel Means Good Luck was released in December 2014 to coincide with the band’s 20th anniversary. New York Music Daily rates the album as one of the top 50 albums of 2014: An especially wild live album by this deliciously shapeshifting, latin and reggae-influenced New York Jewish music juggernaut.
The new disc — available through Rhythm Media Records — was recorded live at The Emelin Theatre. It also includes live bonus tracks: a rare Yiddish ballad of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, performed in centenary commemoration at Cooper Union Great Hall; and an excerpt from Eve Sicular’s musical documentary theater piece J. Edgar Klezmer: Songs from My Grandmother’s FBI Files. MORE
