Frank London's Klezmatics play traditional klezmer music with a folk, rock and jazz twist. The tempos, the instrumentation and the melodies are warped by a fertile imagination. Their albums contain mainly traditionals but sometimes also originals. Frank London plays trumpet, cornet, alto horn, piano, organ. The line-up comprised Matt Darriau on saxophone, David Licht on drums (a former Shockabilly) and Alicia Svigals on violin.

Their albums are: Shvaygn = Toyt/ Silence = Death, Rhythm & Jews (Flying Fish, 1993), Jews With Horns (Xenophile, 1995), Possessed Z (Xenophile, 1997) and The Well (Xenophile, 1998).

Saxophonist Matt Darriau is also the leader of the similarly klezmer-eclectic Paradox Trio, that also interprets Slavic, Turkish and Greek music from a jazz and rock perspective. Their albums are: Paradox Trio (Knitting Factory, 1995), Flying At A Slant (Knitting Factory, 1997), which includes Phase and Faux Clarinet, and Source (Knitting Factory, 1999), which includes Ghost Dance Turkic, Oriental Suite.
