Jews With Horns is the third album by American Klezmer pioneers The Klezmatics, released in 1995. It is the first album on which Matt Darriau performed, which led to his induction as a full member of the group. Marc Ribot is also featured on the second track, Fisherlid.

Just don't expect somber religious music. The Klezmatics' brand of Jewish klezmer is as spirited as it is spiritual. The fast numbers, which dominate their third album, are frenzied celebratory drinking songs - a true revival of the community spirit which spawned this eastern European brand of folk music

Jews With Horns suffers a little for hiding most of its variety at the end of the album. But that’s a quibble in the face of such top-notch musicianship. The Klezmatics have proved they can play with the best in any genre (including classical music’s top violinist, Itzhak Perlman). This album includes a rock guitar cameo by Marc Ribot, who also has played with a host of goyish hipsters (including Sam Phillips, Peter Case, and T-Bone Burnett). Ribot is not the only source of modernity on the record - the Klezmatics’ stuff has been called post-modern because of its blend of genres

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). I have given this album as a gift and the recipient was thrilled with it. I will purchase more cds by the Klezmatics.

Jews With Horns is a joyful album, full of obscure Kabalistic cleverness (the liner notes by Canadian Rabbi Kaiman be Zishe Holzhacker explain all the secret numerical affinities buried in the album), but also with wordplay that the average English speaker will understand and enjoy  . On Possessed, however, the Klezmatics have moved away from this formula and into composition. Frank London and Alicia Svigals (whose violin is both nimble and heartwrenching) trade off with original compositions, and instead of just London, Lorin Sklamberg also does some arranging of traditional melodies.
