This spirited recording reflects the growing popularity of Klezmer music. Klezmer is the musical tradition of Eastern Europe's Ashkenazic Jews mixed liberally with ragtime and jazz influences of the New World. Whenever this group performs spontaneous dancing erupts - with grannies and toddlers joining in with all ages inbetween - unable to restrain themselves on the lively dance tunes. The songs cry out for you to join in.....in fact the entire tradition is meant to be participartory in every way. The group takes it's name from an intersection (with at least twelve corners) in the Rochester suburb of Brighton. The core sound of clarinet and fiddle, accordion, banjo, cello and guitar propells the collection of familiar and refreshingly new tunes.
