Not that I’m an aficionado or anything, but I heard something different tonight at M/SO’s First Night celebration. The David Glukh Klezmer Ensemble features, instead of the usual clarinet, a guy playing a rotary-valved piccolo trumpet. Also in the band, a violin, acoustic guitar, six-string electric bass and percussion.
A really nice, really different sound. They had that lively Klezmer vibe without sounding anything like a wedding band.
