 books or tutorials on learning klezmer
Author: jacky chambers

hi I play Bb clarinet with a small amateur klezmer group here in England - and can play classical clarinet .sight read etc reasonably well .So playing the "straight "klezmer tunes and high notes is fine technically for me - but i really want to play the ornamentation - krekhts, bending notes etc so it sounds more like klezmer ! . I have tried travelling 200 miles [ yeah! ] to have 2 hours with a klezmer teacher who was recommended but failed to get a single krekht !
I have been left feeling rather bereft of where to go/what to do next - and I think a book would help me understand the use of tongue on reed etc to get these effects I know everyone says listen and mimic a lot but if you cant get your emboucher working the right way [ and I was told using your jaw isnt correct ] then you can spend many hours frustrated as well as breathless !
so can anyone recommend a good book - the only one I have found is 24$ + post by tom pulaski - but there are no reviews - so any help /experience of using that book or any others would be really good
Jacky
