So Called is a Canadian artist who does these hip hop/klezmer pastiches (seriously - and they don't suck)

A lot of John Zorn's Klezmer stuff from his Tzadik label is well worth a listen.

Dood, it's Purim. I'll be seeing a local Klezmer band tomorrow. What do you think made me think of it? But I'm just going for the hamantash.

Chag sameach. Purim was always the best holiday as kid: no long prayers or services, hamentashen and candy, costumes and noisemakers and we could always sneak a swig of Kedem when the grownups weren't looking.

Magician: You familiar with Alamaailman Vasarat? If not, check them out. You'd prolly like. And as for the original question of the thread, if I had a bar, I'd play Klaus Schulze there on repeat and not much else. Oh, and some Rob Hubbard when people need to dance.

Oh yeah: For dinner parties, Edith Piaf is very nice.

1960-1970's French lounge music, ska, reggae, instrumental 60's funk Also odd pop music, for instance: France Gall; esp. the song about how great those lollipops taste.

Especially the German versions, I can not stand listening to the lyrics of Computerworld in English.

For a bibulous evening with a few friends where conversation is the prime purpose, early Tom Waits works very well. I mean the era of Small Change, Foreign Affairs etc. "Wasted and wounded, it ain't what the moon did..."

There's only one wave, and it sucks.
