      The only other time I remember hearing klezmer was on National Public Radio.What
      they played was a
      song that was recorded by Victor back around 1917.I can't remember the name of
      the piece.Some 20
      years ago,I had tape of Jewish music(on an 8 track),and I recognised the song
      "My Little Cousin",which
      I have on a couple of CDs:one,by Benny Goodman with a Peggy Lee vocal,the other
      by trumpeter Bun-
      ny Berigan with a vocal by an unknown female vocalist.It dates from 1942 and was
      remembered as being Berigan's last recordig session(done in late March:he died
      less than two months later).

      Hello Dan,

      To the best of my knowledge, the difference between klezmer music and
      Yiddish songs is very simple: when it is sung in Yiddish, it’s a yiddish
      song, and when its purely instrumental, it’s klezmer. In fact, the same
      music can be klezmer or yiddish, depending upon the way it is played. That’s
      all. But the music is the same.

      As for the “And the Angels Sing”, I play it as a klezmer piece of music
      known as “Der Shtiler Bulgar”, the quiet bulgar (a jewish dance)

      Patrick
