Don Byron - Plays the Music of Mickey Katz



En Plays the music of Mickey Katz, Don Byron se dedica a hacer un homenaje a la figura del clarinetista Mickey Katz, innovador de la música klezmer {género musical étnico originado en la tradición askenazí (judíos que se asentaron en Europa central y oriental)}. En relación a los méritos de tal esfuerzo he escuchado las más diversas opiniones que podríamos resumir en que Byron no escuchó jamás a Mickey Katz o que ésta es una obra de culto. En mi opinión, Byron en sus discos no pretende una copia fiel de los estilos que aborda sino más bien, una revitalización de los mismos y, en todo caso, debería valorarse su espíritu inquieto.****
