NewMusicBox looks as Klezmer (is that the only Jewish music?)

Eve Sicular notes:

You may want to have a look at the January edition of NewMusicBox.org, the webmag of the American Music Center, all about klezmer this month!

it includes a feature on David Krakauer and shorter pieces (in the LeadSheet section) by various other klezmer instrumentalists, including Metropolitan Klezmer & Isle of Klezbos' reed player, Debra Kreisberg.

I'll add that Seth Rogovoy's summary of Klezmer is pretty decent, and I really enjoyed Seth Kibel's and Anthony Coleman's comments, and others, alongside Debra's. Nice interview with David Krakauer, too, but that's in PDF form, which is a bit clunky for this purpose.
