Part of a British revival of Yiddish culture, Hilda Bronstein's collection of Yiddish songs are to some degree what one would expect from a basic troupe performing at cultural and folk festivals. At the same time, however, the band (led by Merlin Shepherd) provides a good backing sound ranging from somber to joyous, but Bronstein herself is the star of the show, with a deep, throaty (almost Marlene Dietrich-like in some respects) intonation. The Polish dialect of Yiddish doesn't always lend itself to pretty pastoral sounds of course, but it seems that Bronstein is pushing the envelope even further than needed. Along with Merlin Shepherd's clarinet, the mix of old and new compositions is probably the key highlight of this recording. A handful of songs hearken back to the great Yiddish poets, a handful are from the theater era and immigration to America, a couple are from the wartime era and the partisan movements, and a couple of newer compositions make their debut as well.

Broom-Hilda is an American newspaper comic strip created by cartoonist Russell Myers. Distributed by the Tribune Media Services, it depicts the misadventures of a man-crazy, cigar-smoking, beer-guzzling, 1,500-year-old witch and her motley crew of friends.
The original idea for Broom-Hilda came from Elliott Caplin, brother of Li'l Abner cartoonist Al Capp. He described the main character to Myers, who responded with a sketch of the witch and several samples. Caplin, acting as Myers' business manager, submitted these to the Chicago Tribune Syndicate. Introduced on April 19, 1970, it became an immediate success. Broom-Hilda was reprinted in several collections during the 1970s and 1980s. Details

After a two-year break, the indomitable barrister Horace Rumpole returns in six sprightly new capers, including one told by his long-suffering wife Hilda, who proves to be every bit as canny as her crafty curmudgeon of a husband. As always, Mortimer writes with a Wodehousian elan but, unlike Wodehouse, he incorporates a spirited if indirect wrestling with the social and political issues of the day. In the title piece, an old judge with Alzheimer's is a posthumous figure in a case involving a doctor who is charged with unduly hastening the judge's end... Details

Pianist Lars Jansson recently cleared out the music room of his home in Gothenburg, on Sweden's west coast, and in the process, found some old songs he'd written but forgotten. Inspired by Marcel Proust's epic novel, A la recherche du temps perdu, he put them together with some new ones to create an album that sheds new and often surprising light on the familiar territory of piano jazz.
