J.J. Goldberg is back with a Yom Kippur playlist. Among the guest artists are Leonard Cohen, Amy Winehouse, Eminem, Chava Alberstein and Bob Dylan. Listen, enjoy and repent!
As we approach Yom Kippur, J.J. Goldberg has put together a song list to capture the spirit of the day including tunes by Dylan, Streisand and The Beatles.
I was pleased to see a profile in the New York Times on July 20 of the unusual cantorial-music-aficionado-turned-audiophile-sound-engineer Mendel Werdyger. Werdyger is the proprietor of Mostly Music, one of the last bastions of old school Jewish culture in New York City. While you can certainly buy the standard schlock recordings of Hasidic boys choirs there, the shop is also rich with reissues of powerful cantorial records and classics of Yiddish theater and Hasidic music.
