Reviewed by Ari Davidow
" There is no shortage of artists trying to make Yiddish song contemporary. What is extraordinary is that Nussbaum has succeeded, and suceeded so passionately and so well. I eagerly await her next recording and send her wishes that she tour outside Denmark. But neither is that over-the-topness gone. "Bai mir bistu shein" resolves itself into hoarse shouting more reminiscent of Janis Joplin than the Andrews Sisters, and then returns to a sweet tunefulness entirely appropriate to the song and to the mood. Nussbaum is simply a master singer between both the rock/pop world, and singing a masterful Yiddish repertoire.
