AllMusic Review by

On Blood Oranges, Brave Old World combines the technique of classical music, the freedom of jazz, and the untamed spirit of Klezmer into a new Yiddish vernacular. Part of the "New Jewish Music" movement, Brave Old World includes members of the Klezmatics, Klezmer Conservatory Band, and Ry Cooder's band in its lineup, reflecting the group's roots in tradition and experimentation. The album includes traditional songs like "The Tune," "Daybreak," and "Farewell," along with original compositions like "The Tsadik" and "Homeland."
