Overview

True to their name, the Klezmer Conservatory Band are preservationists rather than innovators in this concert recording of klezmer classics from the 1920s through the '50s. For Live!: The Thirteenth Anniversary Album arrangements are updated for modern tastes while remaining true to the heyday of the Yiddish big bands -- meaning that the anachronisms don't really become intrusive until the group has established an affable enough presence that almost any cornball transgressions can be forgiven. The well-paced, revue-style show, intentionally or not, highlights the contributions of klezmer to mainstream American music. The obvious example, Ziggy Elman's "And the Angels Sing," fits effortlessly between a cut from a 1926 Yiddish operetta and the traditional "Russian Sher."
