"Rashanim is one of the hottest young bands in the New Jewish Renaissance¬Ö"
John Zorn

Rashanim is a trio of guitar, bass and drums/percussion combining the power of rock with the spontaneity of improvisation, deep Middle Eastern grooves, and mystical Jewish melodies. The 'Jewish power trio' is led by Jon Madof on guitar and includes Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (Yo-Yo Ma, Anthony Braxton) on bass and Mathias Künzli (Lauryn Hill) on drums and percussion. The band gets its name from the noisemakers used during the raucous Jewish holiday of Purim. 'Shalosh' is Rashanim's third CD on Tzadik Records.

Jon Madof: Guitars
Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz: Electric Bass, Upright Bass, Oud, Gimbri
Mathias Künzli: Drums, Percussion

Talat is a dynamic new ensemble based in New York that plays original music crossing the borders of Jazz, Middle Eastern Groove and Klezmer. Featuring a quintet of some of the most talented players out of the new generation, this is a brilliant debut CD that will delight fans of Masada, Rashanim, Satlah and the Hasidic New Wave. Loping melodies, catchy hooks and improvisational fireworks from a new generation bringing Jewish music to exciting new places. 'The Growl' is Talat's first CD on Tzadik Records.
