AllMusic Review by

Subtitled "Hungarian & Gypsy Fiddle Music and Songs," Csókolom's May I Kiss Your Hand is a more eclectic and swinging release than most such recordings, including both instrumental and vocal workouts on traditional numbers (as well as Béla Bartók's "Romanian Dance #4"). Gregor Schäfer's jazz-derived double-bass makes this more approachable to non-tradition-bound listeners than much Eastern European fiddle music, giving it a rhythmic pulse; Anti VonKlewitz's low vocals have an interesting spontaneous and worn quality.
