How was your experience?
I always enjoy this ensemble's performances. Very informal and intimate, with the musicians dressing and behaving as if they're from the time the music comes from. The short movies from the 20's & 30's provided by Jerry Beck are always a nice bonus -- including the classic sing-a-longs with a bouncing ball. This time there was an additional treat with a performance from a group from Japan that Ms. Klein and her parlour boys had played with during their recent tours there. A charming era of music is being kept alive and it's a pleasure to be able to visit it every once and a while.
