La Nona Kanata Review

by John Storm Roberts

Subtitled "Judeo-Spanish song" this is a personal take on the Sephardic tradition with U.S. folkie trimmings rather than the tradition itself (Sephardic-American?): guitar with a strong Mexican feel to it that certainly isn't inappropriate (though there are also less impressive Kumbay-ish touches), a whole lot of variety, accordion that provides some of the best moments, overdone vibrato and general manneredness in the vocals, and enormous charm.
