Item description for Joy of Klez: From the Repertoire of the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band - Clarinet/Sax/Trumpet by Maxwell Street Klezmer Band ...
These arrangements are based on recordings from between 1910 and 1940 of Eastern European immigrant musicians who played traditional Jewish dance music for weddings and other celebrations. Many of these pieces were transcribed to help teach klezmer styling to participants of the biennial Midwest klezmer workshop. The arrangements have been prepared to accommodate different ensemble instrumentation, with many parts partially or completely doubling each other. The score edition includes a full performance CD of all 10 tracks.

The Best There Is! Jun 25, 2003
Well, while it may be a little pricy, this is the best Klezmer book on the market! I have personally seen the Maxwell St Klezmer Archives, and these are the same charts they are using, just cleaned up (let me tell you--the charts are a mess!). From the traditional (i.e. Lebedikh un Freilach) to the arranged (i.e. Russian Sher) to the solo (i.e. Zol Zayn Gelept) to the zany (i.e. the MATZOrena) This book has it all! As an aspiring klezmer band leader, I know that I would be no where without this book. However, this site seems to have it out of stock (more evidence of its greatness!). You can purchase these from Maxwell St's website: Klezmerband.com!
