Mishehu Holech Tamid Iti
Avraham Fried - Live in Israel

A cover of Ofra Haza's song and in my opinion a far better attempt at interpreting a beautiful Hebrew song. La'afukei mai? La'afukai kidi'amaran. Gut Shabbos!

Ofra's performance plus transliterated and translated lyrics, here.

Shama Vatismach - Helfgott

Have you heard this Helfgott fellow? A year or so of quiet so he's not over-exposed, and then BAM! This is power!!!

Please excuse the previous post. It seems it's a Kitrug on Nochi. Doesn't happen to any other tracks, pooh, pooh, pooh.

Shalom - Nochi Krohn

Thank you Hashem for Chanukah and for Yud Shvat. Shalom! Here's a bit of Country Yiddem.

Benny Friedman's New Single


Maoz Tzur - London School of Jewish Song

The thing with old-school Jew music--actually, lots of music--is that is is waaaay over-orchestrated. The bass line is dizzying on this track, it's almost playing [bad] lead; the horns between every signature are simply unneeded. Happy Chanukah!

Don't Forget - 8th Day

It is to the mushpa to know where to look, to the Mashpia to remember who's looking, and to all of us to remember that we are always both.

Nye Zuritzi - Andy Statman Quartet

This is such incredible and incredibly Jewish music! LOVE! Which is funny, because I have a special place in my heart for disliking klezmer. Oh, but Andy and his Quartet played at a wedding last night, and WOW! What a wedding! Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Yom Shlishi, shehuchpal bo "Ki tov!" Here is Niggun Lishabbos viYom Tov. The cymbal action is re-dikiliss!
