The following are the liner notes from the CD:
The story of Taibele and the Demon as composed by Lorie Wolf and performed by her dynamic group represents an attempt to crystallize the ambiguous beauty and mania which is at the core of Issac Bashevis Singer's original story. The music on this recording is a responza in musica, a conversation in music with esoteric lore charged with diabolic eroticism. Obsession, lust and possession are at the heart of this old-world tale whose essence is deliciously immoral, seductive and ethereal. Lorie Wolf's interpretation of the narratives, the group's sense of mood, space and passion unfold carefully weaving threads of blues, soul and BEYOND, recalling the alchemical melancholic heights and depths of Ornette Coleman, Bill Evans and Eric Dolphy. Muted, ruminative nostalgia fraught with bitter loneliness, loss and desolation drip from the melodies of this confounding tale. Lorie's Wolf's textured musical interpretation discovers the possibilities, contradictions and unpredictability within the strange souls in this story. What do they have to tell us today?
