The Alexandria Kleztet's second album is a good one. L:ike a rock band, the talented bunch employ clarinets, violins, electric guitars, and drum set.
The album is all instrumental and mixes familiar standards melodies and original compositions. Frailach Medley and Bulgar in B flat sound as if they belong at an Eastern European Jewish wedding. But the catchy oompa is not from a tuba but from an electric bass. That fact is evident on Cry of the Wild Lucy, which is driven by a fast and heavy bass line.
When I played this track on the radio a caller asked if it was The Pixies. He was a little surprised when I told him the name of the group, and then promptly requested Dinosaur Jr.
As traditional as the songs are, it has a modern feel to it. The musicians are as young at heart as they are in age. The songs have a light-hearted feel that goes with the album's title as song titles like Which Way Did He Go George and Miki Loves Mambo. Their 2000 debut was entitled Y2Klezmer.
Nevertheless, Eli Eli, Y'Did Nefesh and Dodi Li sound as timeless as ever. The group's original compositions come in traditional variety as well, but they also write some smooth jazzy sounding pieces. Some invoke a smoky jazz night-club. The title track is striking in name but hardly striking in sound. It's a percussion-free piece of theme music that could easily be the soundtrack to some unwritten movie....

A well-known home-maker TV star, once played a "klezmer" tune on her program. She mentioned that this is what is known as "cacophany" -- a mixed-up and non-melodic
musical mess without grace or beauty. "Cacophany" was her "word for the day", that day, for her audience in the studio, and at home.

Although the Alexandria Quartet plays this "music" as well as it ever can be played, it is still "klezmer" and still cacophanous. I give this album two stars, only because the title is honest enough to mention "Delusions" in it. For music with beauty, style, and magnificence -- look elsewhere, and not to "klezmer" music!
