"Mayn Shtetele Belz / Glick" are two songs from the Yiddish theatre of New York of the first half of the twentieth century. Here, the mood turns nostalgic, with Weinstein's low register flute especially filled with feelings of longing, even languor - the Yiddish word "benkshaft" comes to mind -, while Mike Richmond's bass and Brad Shepik's guitar seem to warmly recall memories of the past.
