Summary

Summary

Festival of Light, Vol. 2 is an equally satisfying follow-up to the groundbreaking Hanukkah holiday compilation, capturing traditional and non-traditional musical takes on the season ranging from humorous and celebratory to ethereal, solemn, and spiritual. The generally subdued musical feel is broken at times by more boisterous offerings from the Klezmatics, the Frank London Big Band, and They Might Be Giants, for example; differing styles abound, including world music, rock, new age/contemporary instrumental, folk, klezmer, smooth jazz, electronic dance music, and traditional hymns, which gives the disc an amazing variety. ~ Steve Huey
