Klezmer Collection
Edited by Phillips

Klezmer, as a description of a musical genre, is a recent coinage.  In Wurope the appellation (though not the music) was sometimes regarded as a bit of an insult, imtimating rough musicianship and lifestyle.  With the passing of the last generation of the people who lived in the life that created this music, the meaning of the term, almost simultaneous with its introduction, became obscure.  The expression has been sometimes been incorrectly used to include Yiddish folk songs, theater music and work songs as well as experimental music fusions.  Klezmer has nothing whatsover to do with Sunrise, Sunset!
