Theodore Bikel has had a varied and prolific career in film, stage and arts and is thought of as one of the worlds best known folk singers and co-founder of The Newport Folk Festival. Theodore recorded over twenty albums albums and here Jasmine focus on Theodores 1958 albums "Theodore Bikel Sings Jewish Folk Songs" and "Theodore Bikel Sings More Jewish Songs". Most of the material on this wonderful CD is of commonly known folk songs, but a couple however are songs that he remembers from his childhood and perhaps have not been heard outside his family circle. To define versatility is to capture the essence of Theodore Bikel. For his own words, he is not a specialist but a general practitioner in the world of the arts.
