Rogovoy, Seth

SUMMARY

"Mr. Rogovoy, a music critic in western Massachusetts, began listening to klezmer in 1997 and was so thoroughly seduced by it that he listened to virtually every available recording with klezmer links. His writing about the music's early history lacks the depth and texture of Mr.Sapoznik's work, [KLEZMER!], and it is beset by a tendency to use contemporary pop as an all-purpose yardstick. THE ESSENTIAL KLEZMER comes to life, though, in the chapters on the bands that have sprouted since the late 1970's. But what makes THE ESSENTIAL KLEZMER invaluable is its second half. An enthusiast's source book, this section includes an extensive critically annotated discography as well as a guide to klezmer Web sites, films, festivals, books and publications."Rogovoy, Seth is the author of 'Essential Klezmer A Music Lover's Guide to a Jewish Roots and Soul Music, from the Old World to the Jazz Age to the Downtown Avant-Garde' with ISBN 9781565122444 and ISBN 1565122445.
