The documentary “Windfall” shows the bitter rancor sowed among the residents of rural Meredith, N.Y., when the wind turbines came to town. When a multi-national corporation offers to revitalize a rural farm town's failing economy with a new industry, residents believe they have found the solution to their economic problems. But the townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover that the company's plans for their town are far from anything they could have ever predicted.

Ayn Sof Arkestra in the New York Times

Hottest New Big Band in NYC

The Ayn Sof Orchestra and Bigger Band are the most exciting new development in big band jazz in New York. To call them the "Jewish big band" is to say that they play large ensemble jazz works liberally sprinkled with themes and motifs from Jewish music. Some of the compositions are jazz arrangements of folk songs; their originals, contributed by several members of the ensemble, draw sometimes deeply, sometimes loosely on klezmer or Middle Eastern melodies. The group, a mix of some of the most highly sought-after jazz talents in the city, has been playing together for about a year, with a monthly residency at bandleader/tenor sax player Greg Wall's Sixth Street Synagogue. Monday night's sold-out show at the Cell Theatre in the West Village was a revelation.

... trumpeter Pam Fleming's 'Intrigue in the Night Market' was downright sexy, her own slyly cosmopolitan solo growing more rootless, the band restlessly and suspensefully rising to a big crescendo out of it.
