This is a somewhat delayed posting of my klezzie set. Klezmer is eastern European Jewish music, which in the U.S. blended with jazz music in the 1920s-1940s, and then helped spawn surf music. In its more recent revival, it has crosspollinated with other genres from hip-hop to reggae to new age elevator music. I neglected to include any new age elevator music in my set :P.
