    1. This indeed is an amazing book on just about all counts. The amount of research is tremendous the detail is fabulous and the writing and commentary, especially about modern Klezmer here in the US and in Israel is top notch. I leaned SO MUCH from this book. If you are interested in Klezmer, you just can't afford to miss this.
