Zogn a Nign (recording)


This is Sherry Mayrent’s debut album and her first recording of original klezmer tunes. For Mayrent, discovering klezmer was discovering her long lost native language. Her compositions, which are virtually indistinguishable, stylistically, from tunes that have been in the klezmer repertoire for generations, are her way of telling her listeners about traditional Yiddish culture and what it means to her. Her clarinet is here accompanied by Brian Bender on piano.

Sherry Mayrent’s clarinet is clear and idiomatic....The tunes are presented simply, with accurate ornamentation and phrasing....The reason to extol this recording is its material....so many melodies which stay completely within the boundaries of tradition and yet are fresh and memorable.
