MP3 Monday: Eastern Watershed Quartet

Posted By on Mon, Nov 30, 2009 at 5:04 PM

Rather than specializing in any one narrow folk genre, the Eastern Watershed Quartet dances lightly across a range of repertoire that includes Eastern European tunes, Israeli dance music and of course klezmer -- or as the band calls it, "minor mode therapy music suitable for all ages." City Paper reviewer Manny Theiner found the long-running local group's diversity both musically and culturally praiseworthy; you can read his review of the Quartet's new CD, The Klez Dispensers, here.

Of the album's last song, he writes, "The ensemble displays Spike Jones-ish, whizz-bang humor with the closer 'Play It Again, Dave,' by legendary clarinetist Dave Tarras." And that's the track we've made available for a free mp3 download today -- enjoy!
