Genre: Klezmer, Folk | Label: Xenophile Records

Much of Possessed is a collaboration with Tony Kushner (the Pulitzer- and Tony-winning playwright of Angels in America). He contributes lyrics to two songs, and the second half of the album was designed as a musical score for his play A Dybbuk: Between Two Worlds (an adaptation of Jewish folk tales by S. An-ski). The marriage of artistic sensibilities is perfect. The Klezmatics' ethos is at once deeply traditional and deeply progressive. Their music is a lively engagement with Jewishness itself, inflecting Eastern European klezmer music with other genres so seamlessly that it seems misleading even to name the other influences (classical, Dixieland, bebop, Middle Eastern folk, modern rock…). Their song catalog includes religious traditionals, but it also includes original Hebraic odes to marijuana and homosexuality. All of which is very much in line with Kushner's endless quest to sort out his own disparate influences as a gay, Jewish, democratic-socialist, Louisiana-born, New York-adopted artiste.

From the beginning of their career The Klezmatics have demonstrated that Yiddish music does not have to be nostalgic, schmaltzy, or kitsch; that Jewish klezmer is Eastern European party music and a vital part of the spectrum of world dance music and culture. Now, approaching their fourth decade together, the Klezmatics continue their redefinition of Yiddish music with their new recording, Apikorsim.

Straight out of Massachusetts comes this album from the Klezmer Conservatory Band. It's a lively piece of work, with all of the vigor common to klezmer in general. The songs are somewhat more traditional than one would likely find on, say, the Klezmatics albums, but still thoroughly enjoyable. The bits that make klezmer stand out are all present: the thumping piano accompaniment, the occasional wailing horns, the slithery clarinet work. The style, in some ways represents the midpoint between German music and Middle Eastern music, with both backgrounds represented by the Jews. This album does well to show off both sides of it all. Pick it up if you're a fan of klezmer; if not already a fan, it wouldn't be a bad choice to test the waters, though something slightly more contemporary like the Klezmatics may be more appropriate.

Imagine the Klezmatics in a small club, or maybe it's a living room, and it's just a subset of the great New York klezmer updaters, playing without a drummer, without a bassist, and without the great Alicia Svigals–keeping their core, trad-meets-modern sound solidly intact.
