Golem songs Product Information
The Golem represents about half of Daniel Hoffman's full 90-minute score for the 1920 German expressionist film Der Golem, in which a clay statue is brought to life in order to protect the Jews of Warsaw from expulsion. Davka's background in Eastern European music and Jewish melody makes him a perfect fit for this new score. For this project, Davka's violin, cello, and percussion are augmented by the bassoon and clarinet of Paul Hanson. ...See Full Description

||This is a movie soundtrack.|
I was disappointed with this CD by my favorite Jewish/MidEast music ensemble. There are over 30 tracks, many under one minute long, which are often taken from their other great CDs.

||This CD Rocks!|
The previous reviewer completely misses the point of this great CD. It is designed to be listened to in its entirety, not as single tracks.

|Good and Evil Sessions CD (2003)
The Good and Evil Sessions are the first in Thirsty Ear's Blue Series Continuum, which emphasizes diverse styles of music with a rotating, leaderless cast of musicians. This one melds Danny Blume and Chris Kelly of Good and Evil fame with turntable maven Miso and some of the heavy-hitters from the avant-garde jazz world, including bassist William Parker, pianist Matthew Shipp, and trumpeter Roy Campbell. The results are unpredictable and deliciously sassy, with groove-based throbs, jazz beats, and turntable scratches setting the stage for down-in-the-bucket solos that purr with joyous abandon. Free improv meets punk and dance rhythms laced with foot-tapping, body-swaying pulses. While the pop inflections are certain to spark a debate within the tiny but intense and vocal free jazz community over the commercialization of art, the generally uncompromising improvisations of the Shipp/Parker contingent stand up reasonably well even if somewhat less-intense and complex than usual. This sort of crossover fusion could widen the appeal of these otherwise relatively obscure though extremely talented performers. Shipp is in superb form, spinning webs of simple (though never simplistic) phrases, veiled by supple nuance. Miso's scratches are a constant, subversive presence, while the Blume-Kelly guitar duo keeps the hips shaking and the trombone twosome of Alex Lodico and Josh Roseman adds a raunchy bottom. Roy Campbell's fading repetitions on "On the Run" are lovingly distorted through the filter of the Good and Evil lens. ~ Steven Loewy

Astereotypical CD (2003)
Although Chris Speed, Brad Shepik, Skuli Sverrisson, and Jim Black have reputations as out jazz cats, they are keenly interested in the traditional musics of regions from the Balkans down to the Mediterranean and across to the Middle East. Since forming Pachora in the late '90s, they have used this particular band to explore folk-based forms from the margin where East meets West, but that doesn't mean they entirely sublimate their distinct musical personalities. They began tugging at the Pachora formula in earnest with their third album, 1999's Ast, which in addition to the odd-metered groovefests and lovely Balkan-flavored melodies included a David Bowie cover together with originals like Sverrisson's "Maria Changed," an album highlight that bracketed its Eastern-tinged middle section with a subtly beautiful melody that tilted toward Western folk and jazz. On 2003's Astereotypical, Pachora's fourth CD and first release on the Winter & Winter label, the band pushes still further against expectations. There are still plenty of opportunities for Speed's round-toned clarinet to dance across the top of infectious grooves fueled by Black's crisp percussion and Sverrisson's deep and supple bass and baritone guitar, and Shepik's virtuosity on the tambura, ...
Lost Photograph CD (2002)
Here, the accordionist from the chamber-folk-jazz group Tin Hat Trio makes his solo debut on saxophonist/composer John Zorn's Tzadik record label. With this release, Rob Burger displays his multi-instrumentalist propensities, backed by the rock-solid rhythm section of drummer/percussionist Kenny Wollesen and bassist Greg Cohen. Throughout this outing, the artist uses unconventional instruments such as a claviola, an old Casio electronic keyboard, prepared piano, marxophone, and other incarnations of musicality. Simply put, Burger churns out an organic-sounding vibe on pieces spanning Jewish traditionalism minced with memorable melodies and feisty soloing endeavors. He displays wit and vigor amid a textural and multi-layered schema, augmented by the rhythm section's rumbling backbeats. In addition, Burger is a colorist, apt to employ a glockenspiel or celeste on certain pieces, while often conveying a fairy tale-like disposition to coincide with his quaintly constructed motifs. With his composition titled "Constantinople," the band implements a hard-edged klezmer groove, anchored by Cohen's firm ostinato and Wollesen's upfront attack. Needless to say, Burger has compiled a winner here. Zealously recommended. ~ Glenn Astarita

Meditations for Piano CD (2003)
In 2003, the maverick pianist Borah Bergman released the showcase solo set, MEDITATIONS FOR PIANO, on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Purely as an experiment, producer Zorn had suggested that the usually volatile pianist try toning down his aggressive, even angry, ambidextrous style just this once. The result was a searching set of mournful yet accessible Jewish-mystical improvisations, deceptively static but with a rippling, churning energy all its own. It's not stretching the metaphor to say that the Job-like Borah Bergman at last submitted himself to a higher power and reaped the greater wisdom on these MEDITATIONS.
Solo performer: Borah Bergman (piano).
