This is an album that does pretty much what it promises, and highlights a number of the main players in the klezmer revival that's now been going on for a quarter of a century.

A couple of omissions -- David Krakauer and Kroke -- stand out, and at times the compilation seems to be stretching a bit with major names in the field, although perhaps that's more an indication that it's a very small field. Still, for anyone interested in discovering klezmer, this is a fine place to begin.
