Work on a new album, many artists say, begins when the previous album goes to print. Today, Yeedle, one of the most prominent artists in modern Hasidic music, launches his sixth album “A Verdiger Yeedle“, a play on words with his name and Yiddish translation “Worthy Jew!”
The new album is a collaboration of the elite of the Hasidic music industry. A Verdiger Yeedle boasts 12 tracks by 10 premiere composers, 8 brilliant arrangers and is produced by Yeedle himself. Ruli Ezrachi was Yeedle’s vocal producer for the album. Mixing with flavor, was done by the unparalleled Eli Lishinsky. Composers and and hosted guest duets featured on the album include; The King, Yeedle’s father Mordechai Ben David, Aaron Razel joining in a decade long production on Sos Asis, Yitzchak Fuchswho composed the passionate song Aneinu, and Yeedle debuts Boruch Sholom Blesofsky – a genius singer, composer and arranger he discovered and harnessed to the current project in Melayim Ziv, Soon and Shakul.
Additional composers and arrangers include the preeminent Mona Rosenblum, Moshe Laufer, Benny Hershkowitz, Eli Laufer, R’ Shlomo Kalisch, Lazer Kalisch, Dudi Kalisch and Pinky Weber. There are many talented people whose contributions are highlighted in the album, such as Ken Burgess, Moshe Roth, Yoily Dickman.
“I spent four years of my life on this album,” reveals Yeedle, “I’m glad we were able to create an album multicolored with nearly every style to cater to the requests of my listeners. Some of these melodies are musical projects that are here to stay in our homes and lives and for many years God willing.”
The album will hit stores today and be available online on www.topjewishmusic.com. A video clip will be distributed shortly.
