AllMusic Review by

This is the companion CD to the critically acclaimed book of the same title published by MacMillan which traces the development of Klezmer music through the 19th and 20th centuries. A fine collection of music was selected for this compilation, reflecting the development of the Klezmer style as a purely Eastern European Jewish form to a truly international style of music that absorbed the influence of jazz, pop music, and even punk.
