Leo Fuld – Mazzel
Artone 1966

Leo Fuld, front

liner notes click

Friends introduced me to this guy. The album is named
‘mazzel’, and mazzel is something he certainly had. Leo
Fuld was a jewish folksinger who was born in Rotterdam.
Now he had the mazzel ( luck ) to realise it was best
leaving Holland and move to the USA in 1939. As we
all know he probably saved his life doing so, a little
later Rotterdam was bombed and many died in the
second world war that began in the next year.
Something quite different then you are used
to find here, a little change can’t hurt though.
Wonderful atmosphere, slightly gypsy,
warmest voice, lots of emotion..
