The Road Never Travelled is a double disc (total running time: 85' +), the first presents more secular pieces, while the second, subtitled Liturgy Lane, offers up a healthy diet of original music based on sacred texts. Some of the songs on disc one, including the title track, are English pop/folk/world repertoire, and indeed the album is not entirely Jewish music in Jewish languages. The entire double disc collection of 18 tracks has a recording and mixing history that spans a period of 28 years, so it is in part a loving glance at the past, and in part a confident vision of the future.

It has been 23 years since the last Tzimmes release, KlezMyriad, but the ensemble has not been idle. From 1998 until 2005, the group still did some concerts and some larger scale projects as well. It is impossible to encapsulate 23 years into a cogent statement of a paragraph or two, so suffice it to say that Tzimmes has gone through some transformations, as is usual and normal in the profession; and yet, it continues to be a family of musicians and colleagues, bound together by a common musical purpose.

Tzimmes, Vancouver’s beloved Jewish Music Ensemble turns 35 in 2021. Founded in Victoria, BC, in 1986 by musical director Moshe Denburg, its musical mandate has always been to include the many strands of Jewish musical tradition, everything from the Ashkenazi (Yiddish and Klezmer), to the Sephardi (Ladino and Mediterranean), to Mizrahi (Near Eastern), to more contemporary and secular expression. ... more
