    So another interesting sounding CD that nobody will ever be able to purchase, unless the reviewer could see his way to telling us where to get it.

    The CD is available at http://afroklezmermusic.com/

    Thanks for the review, Raul. I'm sure my friend Ben Davis won't mind me pointing out that the saxophone solo on "Dolgo Horo" is me on alto. Ben has several great solos on the CD.

    Paul, in addition to Jeff's post, let me tell you that a quick google of the artist name and cd name comes up with purchase info at CDBaby: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/4thwardafroklez. Purchase info for this CD was not at all difficult to find, so your comment "another interesting CD that nobody will ever be able to purchase" is a bit of an exaggeration.

    Your ongoing posts about availability suggest it is the writer's and/or AAJ's responsibility to provide purchase info; under most circumstances it is not, especially when said purchase info is so easily obtainable through google - as is almost always the case. I will also tell you that when review copies of CDs are received, they rarely, if ever, come with purchase info for the reviewer to view.

    So, before you jump to conclusions in future, and before you post these complaints, I'd humbly recommend you try using google with the artist name, and cd title. I'm in Canada and the purchase info came up as the fourth item on the first page of google results, so was quick and easy to find.

    Make google your friend... :)

    Paul, AAJ reviews a lot of independently produced music and most of it is available at CD Baby. "East Atlanta Passover Stomp" is available there at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/4thwardafroklez/from/aaj

    There's also CD Universe, JazzLoft and a bunch of other stores.

    Like John said, try searching before you post.

    Jeff:
    Heard "Dolgo Horo" again. I stand corrected. Oh the perils of the "Blindfold Test"!

    I've know Jeff Crompton since he was a little boy, and almost since I can remember he was interested in Jazz.
