Album Review
Reviewed 2007-12-05 
Just what you’d expect from the band’s name. Solid, strong klezmer with a big city edge. Recorded live, many with spoken word intros and watch for applause. All play-worthy, but I liked these the best:

1. Upbeat folk dance w/lots of style. It’s a celebration.
4. Spoken word intro to a Yiddish tango. Very stylish.
5. Spoken intro, slow then an upbeat version of Luck be a Lady
6. Mid/upbeat folk dance w/deep percussion & flutes
7. Mid/up oom-pah dance, like a village party.
11. Downtempo, almost elegant then upbeat & wacky.
12. Mid/upbeat blend w/a strong Eastern European feel.
14. Bouncy polka-esque twirl w/strong horns.
18. Starts slow, then turns into mid/upbeat jazz w/vocals.
