The first album of the band (Klezz Jazz) released in 2003. The lovers of folk, jazz and world music will all enjoy the nine songs this album contains.

The members of NIGUN, who don’t go only in for the same music but they are also friends, are mixing Jewish music (klezmer, sephard, folk-sacral) with jazz and free-improvisational elements.

"Impressive klezmer-inflected jazz set from a Hungarian band with some serious chops. Alto player Janos Vazsonyi reminds me of Lee Konitz at his fiery best, while clarinetist Daniel Vaezi has a lot of Perry Robinson going on. Great rhythm section work and inventive approach to oft-recorded pieces like 'Shnirele Perele."

Few entry words - I'm very glad I found your blog! I love the selection of music you present! You're asking readers to post their comments; as I consider myself as an enthustiastic but experienced listener of music of this genre and I love to discover hidden masterpieces, I decided to comment every album I try.

So here's very short 'review' - although it's interesting to hear 'jazzy' version of well known klezmer 'standards', this album is just 'proper'. It's not disappointment, it's 'regular'. Nothing that shakes the world, nothing that keeps you away. Pure basic [high] quality. Compare it with the band Paniks - this is what I call a jewel! I was very happy to see you covered Paniks on your blog.

Anyway, I'll continue with testing yet unknown albums - and with comments, too ;-)

Great thanks for sharing this with us!

Regards!
L.
