“time for Israeli singer, already a Zorn collaborator, Ayelet Rose Gottlieb and her Pangaea project”
Mycale, a vocal quartet made up of four of the most highly individualistic and creative singers working today, more than does justice to the material. […] Ayelet Rose Gottlieb is an accomplished jazz singer and composer (her recording Mayim Rabim has been previously reviewed).
~ Daniel Scheide
“Vocalist Ayelet Rose Gottlieb is stunning with her versatility and uses her rich voice to gain equal membership in the band. […] Original Hebrew and Aramaic lyrics are sung in Gottlieb’s Israeli-accented vocal style, reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald and Ute Lemperer”.
“[…] and then a musical image that recalls the origins of her family. Ayelet’s grandmother, I imagine her on a terrace on the hills near Jerusalem, between the pomegranates in bloom, while cats roam around, and the dream of the promised land grows day by day. This track is named after Venezia Mizrahi, a name that makes us understand the journey that is at the heart of this wonderful music.”
