“Happy Hour” new release by Breslov Bar Band

by OutOfTowner July 21, 2013

HAPPY HOUR

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t usually recommend or tout a CD without listening to it a number of times and really getting a feeling for it, but I have to make an exception with the latest release by Binyomin Ginzberg and The Breslov Bar Band. Yesterday, I listened to the preview of their  new album “Happy Hour” and I just love how they manage to put a modern and fresh twist on some old classic songs. I hope to be able to do an extensive review of this album as soon as time permits

Here is what Binyomin has to say about his latest release:

“Happy Hour” is the follow up to our critically acclaimed debut album, “Have No Fear,” and features our unique arrangements of some of our favorite traditional and contemporary Breslov melodies.

On this album, the BBB incorporates a diverse range of musical styles and influences into their music, including Traditional Klezmer, Funk, Ska, Reggae, Punk, and more.

We hope you’ll enjoy our interpretations of these incredible melodies!

About the album title…

Breslov Chassidim place strong emphasis on living joyfully, an approach rooted in the teachings of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, the movement’s founder, who famously taught: “Every hour is Happy Hour!” (OK, he didn’t exactly use those words. He did teach, “Mitzvah gedola lihyos besimcha tamid – it is a great mitzvah to be constantly joyful!”) There are many inspiring Breslov teachings about the importance of joy and a positive approach to life.
