New CD with the Nu Haven Kapelye
The Nu Haven Kapelye, New Haven's own Klezmer Jewish music orchestra has just completed it's first CD, What's Nu?  Thirty four musicians and two singers came together to record thirteen songs ranging from classic Klezmer to Yiddish swing.  After months of recording, overdub sessions, and mixing sessions the CD is finally ready for you to hear.  Some really hot playing and some great solos throughout the album.  Take a listen to What's Nu? and hear just how crazy good and fun a Klezmer orchestra can sound. I am very proud to have produced this recording and written many of the arrangements. 

There are already a couple of nice articles out on line about the music and the group.
