New Afro-Semitic CD - music from High Holidays
I'm excited to announce that my new CD: The Days of Awe: Meditations for Selichot, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur will be officially released on Thursday, August 14. This groundbreaking recording is the very first jazz holiday album to focus exclusively on interpretations of music from the Jewish High Holy Day repertoire. Six of the tracks on the album are my arrangements of High Holy Day prayers from the repertoire of the legendary Cantor, Yossele Rosenblatt.
Accompanying me on the album are members of The Afro-Semitic Experience and Frank London of the Klezmatics. It will be available on-line at several major outlets including www.hatikvahmusic.com, www.cdbaby.com, and www.amazon.com.
To celebrate the release of this unique album there will be two concerts in the coming weeks.
On Thursday, August 21, 12:00 p.m. I will be giving a free Concert at the Chase Bank Building Plaza/City Hall Annex, 999 Broad Street, Downtown Bridgeport, Connecticut. The Afro-Semitic Experience will be palying music from The Days of Awe and This Is The Afro-Semitic Experience.
