[JMR] Jewish Music at 50,000 Feet

by yossi February 02, 2011

8th Note Big Icon

In a landmark event for the Jewish music business, a mainstream Jewish album took the skies today for possibly the first time ever, as British Airways began featuring Yossi Green’s 8th Note as one of the selections on their in flight entertainment system.   Much of the credit goes to London’s Chaim Feld of Feld Music Productions, a frequent British Airways traveler who contacted the airline requesting music to accommodate the airline’s many Jewish customers.  After submitting songs from various artists including Lipa Schmeltzer, Ohad, Chaim Yisrael, Shloime Taussig , Shloime Gertner, in addition to songs from the 8th Note, the decision was made to carry Yossi Green’s 8th Note album in its entirety.  Both Twitter and Facebook have been buzzing as Jewish music fans on both sides of the Atlantic spread the news of this exciting news.

In an ironic turn of events, Yossi Green is currently in London, performing at tonight’s Siyum Hashas made by the members of Bais Hamedrash Ohr Chodosh, headed by Dayan Gelley, Shlita.

Green was clearly overwhelmed after seeing photos of the on flight entertainment menu screen, listing 8th Note as one of the choices.

“Imagine that I have this show, here on this night in London,” said Green from the Siyum at The VIP Lounge in the Edgeware section of London.  ”I might not have had any reason to fly British Air in the next five months and would have had to rely on hearsay to see this.”   Instead, Green who will be flying back to New York on British Airways at the end of the week, will be able to see his album on the in flight entertainment screen with his own eyes.

As for Chaim Feld, he is proud that all his efforts paid off. .

“Both Yossi Green and I would like to thank everyone on Facebook and Twitter who helped spread this exciting news.”
