A companion if you will to the Book of Klezmer, by the same author. This contains a short history on klezmer, and more than 300 tunes, many collected by the author on his numerous trips to Eastern Europe.
I am especially pleased that there are a selection of songs in Yiddish and a CD that includes 36 of the songs. One nice last touch, if you like me play an instrument in Bb, all the tunes on the CD are also transposed to the correct key. Makes it even more fun on the clarinet.
So just buy it alrea
