Amazon.com Reviewer: Erika Borsos - World-class Jazz Compositions & Traditional Macedonian Folk
"If the traditional music of the Balkans appeals to you and you like improvisational jazz ... this CD will blow you away. Music of the Balkans and Central Europe has been hidden too long ... The region has been a fertile soil for exciting, astonishing, experimental music which in modern times combines with traditional music that is creative, original and altogether very satisfying. The traditional Macedonian folk tunes and melodies, Brusnichko Oro, Nevenino Oro, Bukovsko svadbarski oro, and Talevo kasapsko oro are my favorites because the minor scale and unusual rhythms allow for highly fluid and lyrical melodic interpretation. Tale Ognenovski is a master of interpretative clarinet sounds and inventor of exotic musical phrases. Overall, this CD demonstrates that the mysterious music from the Balkans belongs on the world-stage ... for everyone to hear and enjoy. "
