CD Reviews

Early Statman from the early days of the klezmer revival
Rabbi Yonassan Gershom | Minnesota, USA | 01/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I checked this CD out of my small-town Midwestern library because it was the only klezmer album they had listed, and I was curious to see what my gentile farmer neighbors were being exposed to as "typical Jewish music." Well, if you were going to pick only one CD to represent klezmer, then this would definitely be a good choice. The library's catalog description didn't tell me anything about the performers (not even their names), so I was doubly pleased to find out that the album was recorded by Zev Feldman and Andy Statman. This is a re-release of an early CD they did back in 1980, when the current klezmer revival was just getting started. At that time, many Jews of the younger generation had never been exposed to this music, and the gentile world was largely unaware it existed. This album was instrumental (pun intended) in setting a very high standard for klezmer performance, and it`s still a real mechayah (pleasure) to listen to today. Now that I have to give the library copy back, I want one for myself!"
