"the aesthetic is something like a bar mitzvah after party, soaked in
Manischewitz and smoky lounge jazz. Liturgical material and Oriental-mode
musings make up the tunesack." -Barnes and Noble.com

With the assistance of A-list players Booker King, Steven Bernstein, and
Peter Apfelbaum, saxophonist Paul Shapiro takes on the religious music of
the Jewish tradition and laces it with a decided downtown jazz point of
view. The result is a rhythmic and challenging hybrid of old and new that
pushes jazz and Jewish music into a new direction. It is a night that
shouldn't be missed.
