JDC#FormatPriceItem Status
50205Soft$15.95This item is currently unavailable.
From the Old World to the Jazz Age to the Downtown Avant-Garde, this is the definitive guide to an ancient music made new again, mesmerizing dance music that is simultaneously reverential, mischievous, ecstatic, and tragic. Seth Rogovoy leads the reader through the past, present, and future of Klezmer: its survival, its popularity and rediscovery in America, and its influence on some of the hottest musicians playing today including John Zorn, David Krakauer, and Ben Folds Five.

Includes a comprehensive discography of old and new Klezmer, a thoughtful guide to building a Klezmer library, and a tour of Klezmer on the Internet.
