Publisher's Summary

Tales of beggars, bakers, and babies, this is one of Joel's most beloved recordings. You'll be carried around the world and back again, with a detour through Mohammed Ali's Green Door Pizza oven in Jerusalem, with the tales woven together with strains of music to set the mood.

Critic Reviews

"Listeners will be carried on the wings of Joel ben Izzy's words, whether by laughter at the fools of Chelm, or by tenderness at the reconciliation of two warring brothers. Music from many cultures - traditional Klezmer music as well as a Romanian hora, a Gypsy csardas, and an Irish jig - string the stories together like beads on a necklace. Voice, pacing, performance and content create a near-perfect whole." ( Parent's Choice magazine)
