Review: Ari Goldwag – The English Album

Review: Ari Goldwag – The English Album

We have to remember, aside from being a musician/singer, Ari Goldwag is also a Kiruv Rabbi (www.arigoldwag.com) who provides the listener/viewer with a purpose and message behind every song/drasha. With that prior knowledge, it makes sense that he finally released a album full of English tracks. Each track is like a mashal (parable) which provides [&hellip

JMDerech Review of The Chevra 4 (Chai)

JMDerech Review of The Chevra 4 (Chai)

                    What’s up JM Nation!? Before even listening to Chai, the Chevra’s newest CD, I could tell I’d be in for something good. I loved the album cover design. It’s different than the average Jewish music CD cover; it’s clean, minimalistic two-toned color design gives it [&hellip

The “Not So Hidden” Joys of YouTube

The “Not So Hidden” Joys of YouTube

Attention all parents! Trying to cook or clean; learn or earn? I’ve found that YouTube of all things can really be a lifesaver in times of desperation. No, I do not promote sitting your child in front of a monitor watching videos all day, but every now and then, as I said, it can save [&hellip

Yoni Stern Review

Yoni Stern Review

The first thing you’ll notice about this album is that the mixing and arrangements aren’t top notch. It seems like it was a low budget cd, which in understandable in these tough economic times. However, I’m here to tell you not to overlook this album, because you could be missing out on the album of [&hellip

Miami Boys Choir (Mi La’Hashem Eilai) Review

I reviewed Yavoh, which seemed liked yesterday to me, I’m surprised how fast this new album came out. I know it’s been two years, but after a successful album, you usually want to take your time and really tweak the follow up album so that it has much success as the previous one. I see [&hellip

Review: Shalsheles Jr. 2

Shalsheles Jr. 2 It’s nice to hear that Shalsheles Jr. is back and with more than just a single or guest appearance. With the passing of time, the former soloists voices have become to mature. Subsequently, there’s a new batch of children on this cd, including singing shensation Dovid Dachs, The rich mature voice of [&hellip

Review: Michoel Pruzansky’s MP3

Review:  Michoel Pruzansky’s MP3

My thoughts on MP3, the third album from singer Michoel Pruzansky: Letav Uvid – I must admit, Pruz is the only singer who can sing the same words over and over and I don’t get tired of it. He doesn’t kvetch like Shwekey. He doesn’t whine like Fried. And he doesn’t croak like those who [&hellip

REVIEW: Zevi Kaufman – Music: The Language of My Soul

REVIEW: Zevi Kaufman – Music: The Language of My Soul

Zevi Kaufman is a newcomer on the scene of Jewish music. If the last name sounds familiar, that’s because it belongs to singer Shloime Kaufman, Zevi’s cousin. Zevi has a mixture of styles on his album ranging from yeshivish to borderline Jewish music. He does push the boundaries on some songs, but no more than [&hellip
