JM Blogger Awards: JM Derech

JM Blogger Awards:  JM Derech

Best Album: Avodas Tzedaka –  Shloime Kaufman. For me, Shloime had the best mix of singers on his album. I get tired of hearing the same voice after a while, which is why I’m partial to groups over solo artists. He had Baruch Levine, Abie, A.K.A. Pella & Pruz. I can’t get enough of Kol [&hellip

Despite his very hectic schedule, Baruch Levine took a few minutes to spend some time discussing his latest release, Touched by a Niggun, with our very own JM Derech.

Review on Shwekey & Friends in Manhattan

Review on Shwekey & Friends in Manhattan

Wow! What a blast! A cold blast at that. I showed up in Manhattan a good half hour before the Shwekey & Friends show. I circled Manhattan like days of old, trying to find a parking spot, however, there was not one in sight. I figured being a half hour early would get me a [&hellip

Shloime Daskal – Yeshiva Darchei Torah’s Chanukah Mesiba

Shloime Daskal – Yeshiva Darchei Torah’s Chanukah Mesiba

Shloime Daskal sang last night, the 4th night of chanukah, at Yeshiva Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway, NY. Daskal was brought in for their annual Chanuka mesiba, which started out with a meal and speaker, followed by Daskal, who shook the house, literally. The bass was pumping so high, I could feel my feet moving [&hellip

Yaakov Chesed – The Passage: Another Review

Yaakov Chesed – The Passage: Another Review

I’m going to start out by saying – I grew up listening to secular music – With that said, I haven’t found much in the Jewish music world that compares to that of secular music. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but there are still those who need an outlet of secular styled music with [&hellip

Sheves Chaverim Review

Sheves Chaverim Review

This album continues where Sheves Achim left off. Ari Goldwag compositions and harmonies with talented child vocalists singing them. It doesn’t need much introduction – Therefore, lets get down to Tachlis! (Review) + HOT – MILD – COLD Meter Im Hashem (MILD) – A Yeedle “Bizos Ani Boteach” intro. Like the rest of the album, [&hellip

Sheves Chaveirim Sampler

I was skimming through facebook and found that Ari Goldwag posted something on his blog Geulah Perspectives about Sheves Chaveirim. Lo and behold! It’s a sampler for the new album! Looks like one of the songs he has the kids singing is “Finally Here” a song he previously recorded with his vocals. The sampler sounds [&hellip

The JMDerech Experience – Shloime Kaufman

The JMDerech Experience – Shloime Kaufman

I was attending the chassuna of my wife’s friend Sunday night in Brooklyn. As any good music reporter would do, I brought my mini camcorder in hand. Also, I had asked Shloime if he would mind a duet, the two of us, singing my favorite song “Yigdal” from his debut album, Avodas Tzedaka. Shloime, being [&hellip
