Product Notes

Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys have been performing rare early 20th century jazz music since 1997. If you've ever attended Janet's live shows or perused one of her 9 CDs, you will have encountered Yiddish flavored novelty numbers featuring the work of composers Blanche Merrill (for Fannie Brice material) and Kalmar and Ruby (writers for much of the Marx Brothers' theater and movie work) and Irving Berlin amongst others. These songs circa 1915-1932 have everything to do with immigrant experiences and how they find themselves in surprising situations as recent arrivals to America with it's wild amalgam of melting pot mania. Yiddisha Follies marks the 10th CD release by Janet Klein & Her Parlor Boys since 1998. On every CD Janet has released with the band she has included one or two Yiddish novelty songs and this release includes all these earlier numbers plus 6 new songs.
