Missing My Music

April 30, 2009

So normally it’s a post that sparks the comments. This time, a comment to a different post inspired me to pull out my laptop and start typing.

Miami Experience Concert Review

April 20, 2009

Note: Pictures from COLLive. I’m finally home. After my GPS threw me “off the derech” so to speak. I was trying to get home from Brooklyn and it sends me through Manhattan of all places. I must have spent an hour in traffic in Manhattan. Why is there gridlocked traffic at 11:30PM!? Anyway, I doubt [&hellip

Best Of: Tzlil V’Zemer

April 20, 2009

Out of the major boys choirs that have popped up over the years in Jewish music, Tzlil V’zemer stands out with regards to two aspects: its arrangements, and its selection of soloists.

April 20, 2009

Abie Rotenberg. If he composed it, it’s probably going to be good. There aren’t too many composers who are that good that their name next to a song means quality. I would place him second only to Shlomo Carlebach (Yossi Green would be third) in the top Jewish composers list. His songs are hartzig, earnest [&hellip

ABD Debut Album – CD review by “the Sheichet”

April 06, 2009

ABD Debut Album – a CD review by Mendel “the Sheichet” Not much was known about this group before they came out, but I from what I had heard I was expecting a half-baked Dveykus imitation. Obviously I had heard wrong. While there are most certainly large doses of Dveykus influence in this group’s style, [&hellip
