A fine debut. Rating: 4 stars

Isle of Klezbos, of course, is Eve Sicular's all-female sextet, with several fellow members of Metropolitan Klezmer in attendance, and this is their long-awaited first CD. It was well worth the wait. Moodier, perhaps darker
and certainly pitched to slower tempi than the Metros' set, this is a satisfying first effort that allows the soloists to stretch a bit, while Sicular keeps rock-solid time as usual. Trumpeter Pam Fleming, also a Metro, makes some particularly telling contributions here. A fine debut. Rating: 4 stars.
