AllMusic Review by

What 3 Mustaphas 3 did for what might be called Eastern European trad-rock, the New Orleans Klezmer Allstars do for klezmer. With tongue firmly in cheek (but hand soundly on heart), the Allstars create a unique, funky brand of traditional Yiddish music. "A Viennese Freilach" is lively yet languid, but they pull out all the stops on "The Wedding Suite" (which features the interlude "Transition to Buffet").
