    EngineerJames Lott; Ulrich Schauff

    Csokolom: Anti von Klewitz (vocals, violin, viola); Sander Hoving (violin, viola, kontra); Anneke Frankenberg (violin); Gregor Schafer (acoustic bass).
    Principally recorded at Sun Studios, Memphis, Tennessee on February 14, 1998.
    Subtitled "Hungarian & Gypsy Fiddle Music and Songs," Cskolom's May I Kiss Your Hand is a more eclectic and swinging release than most such recordings, including both instrumental and vocal workouts on traditional numbers (as well as Bla Bartk's "Romanian Dance #4"). Gregor Schfer's jazz-derived double-bass makes this more approachable to non-tradition-bound listeners than much Eastern European fiddle music, giving it a rhythmic pulse; Anti VonKlewitz's low vocals have an interesting spontaneous and worn quality. ~ Richie Unterberger

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (6-7/99, p.58) - "...a generous feast of 20 tracks of furious, charismatic, and inventive music....Csokolom are steeped in the Eastern European village music tradition, they are not afraid to tip in a bit of jazz or other influences from beyond their borders....coherent and enchanting..."
