Yale Strom with Hot Pstromi & Klazzj
Cafe Jew Zoo
Composer and violinist Yale Strom has attempted to capture the many faces of klezmer on this album, and in part he succeeds. Whether it's on "Biribidzhan," with its familiar frantic pace (there were many similarities between klewzmer and Gypsy music), or "Horo Din Caval," led by some lovely guitar picking, or even the attempt at soul with "Ten Plagues," he refuses to be shackled to some stereotype of klezmer. And that's all well and good.
