My recent favorite is Les Yeux Noir, who have a strong gypsy slant to their klezmer music. They consist of two brothers who play violin, a cello, plus guitar, bass and drums. If you have a chance, see them live. That is how this music should be heard. They are just releasing a live CD which will hopefully convey the joy and energy of their shows. These guys play some of the fastest music I've ever heard.
