However, the music on "Tsuker-Zis" stands on its own, well apart from London's and Sklamberg's other projects and various ongoing collaborations. This CD, whose title means 'sugar sweet,' is actually a collection of Jewish holiday music for Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, Passover, and Purim. Sklamberg's delicate tenor remains at the front and center throughout, vocalizing in both Yiddish and Hebrew while London contributes warm and gallantly restrained brass. Emphasizing the reverential, lyrical, and devotional aspects of Jewish folk and liturgical music, the duo introduces a variety of unexpected and seemingly incongruous musical flavors such as Ara Dinkjian's oud and Deep Singh's tablas, and ex-Psychedelic Furs Knox Chandler's effects-laden electric guitar. Acoustic textures dominate, though Chandler's guitar is used to great effect on several tunes. While "Tsuker-Zis" never approaches the energy levels routinely accessed by the Klezmatics, it is a beautiful artistic statement suggesting the existence of some sort of easily accessible cultural and spiritual nexus where people from all faiths can understand and appreciate each others' cultures.
