Derek Reid
Folk Roots

"The bloom of Yale Strom's CD is its considered subtlety as a history lesson...Strom draws our attention right from the start...Given the time, here is a place for everything. The bands are each identifiable and Elisabeth Schwartz's Yiddish is just right."

Seth Rogovoy
The Essential Klezmer and Sing Out

"Yale Strom's considerable talents as an arranger, composer, folklorist, musician, producer and all-around musical visionary have never been put to better use than they have on Garden of Yidn (Naxos World). For 20 years, Strom has been dishing out the fruits of his field research in Eastern Europe and his own imagination in a variety of forms and to varying effect. He puts it all together on Garden of Yidn, which with its combination of original compositions and Yiddish and Sephardic folk melodies in jazzy arrangements has the feel of late-night Jewish cabaret. The revelation of the album, however, is vocalist Elizabeth Schwartz, who channels her wide-ranging background in musical theater, blues, rock and jazz into a vivid, contemporary Yiddish idiom that needs no translation."


"This 2000 album includes tavern songs, Yiddish theatre songs, Ladino and synagogue music, and originals. A real find."
