Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2010-11-15 
Klezwoods is a Boston-based amalgam of strings, horns, and percussion that melds the spirit of traditional klezmer and balkan music with modern grooves, improvisation and East coast attitude. All tunes are really good.
***1: 3:34 mid tempo smooth strings, bass & brass from Yemenite culture
****2: 3:02 fast Bulgarian tune, soulful trumpet, great bass & guitar
**3: 3:22 mid tempo Turkish tune with a ska chaser
4: 2:46 mid to faster "Mother in law dance" with tuba
****5: 3:39 mid to faster tune from Macedonia
**6: 2:35 klezmer with a hint of reggae
***7: 3:01 mid tempo Mid Eastern tune, real nice guitar
***8: 3:40 Greek folk danc, tuba rules
9: 2:56 slow to mid tongue-in-cheek klezmer take on Coltrane’s Giant Steps
**10: 3:19 fast fast great frantic dance number, with tuba.
