GUEST,murray@mpce.mq.edu.au REQ: recommend good Klezmer CD's? (19) RE: REQ: recommend good Klezmer CD's? 01 Aug 00


Helen. Dona Dona is not Kletzmer per se. Hebrew music doesn't tend to be.

The best Kletzmer I ever heard is done on a trumpet rather than a clarinet. It is a Benny Goodman recording of "And the Angels Sing". Martha Tilton (a shiksa if I ever heard one!) sings it in the swing fashion of the time. Suddenly the drums pick up and Ziggy Elman goes to work on the trumpet! Wow!.
