Sari N. Kent The Celebrity Café Reviews
EUGENE MARLOW’S HERITAGE ENSEMBLE/Celebrations: With Bobby Sanabria hanging out do you think this is going to be anything like the typical Klezmer album? Every Jewish kid has these songs stapled to their DNA, and the more rebellious ones grew to hate them as corny but the Afro-Cubanization of the holiday of the lights will really get to even them after they get past the familiar core riffs. I never thought this stuff could sound so wild.
