Review: Dovid Lowy, Ata Imadi

                        Never heard of Dovid Lowy? Me neither. However, Dovid Lowy’s album is a solid album with beautiful songs that are primarily sung in a kumzitz style such as Eitan Katz, or Yosef Karduner. This album features songs composed by Dovid and special guests [&hellip

Review: Yaakov Shwekey – Kolot

                      Holy smokes! This album is going to knock your socks off. This is the first album in years that I can say I enjoyed the first time I listened to it. Normally, it takes me 5 – 7 listens to determine if an album [&hellip

                    With every album, the Marcus brother’s manage to continue to bring simcha to the masses and this album does not disappoint.   Hooleh: The theme of this song is Mitzvah Lihyot B’Simcha. This song falls into a category I have reserved for 8th day tunes [&hellip

Baruch Levine: Modim Ananchu Lach

Baruch Levine: Modim Ananchu Lach

                    Baruch Levine is the Abie Rotenberg of our generation. His songs simply have the ‘IT’ factor. Though not necessarily wedding hits, Baruch’s songs get sung at Shabbos tables and included in kumzitz’s across the Jewish community. I often am unable to form an opinion on [&hellip

What Are You Listening to Right Now?

It was Camp S’dei Chemed 1992, and Rabbi David Orlofsky had just spoken to us about how, despite the fact that the Beis Hamikdash actually burned on the 10th, it seems there is much joy in the air as the clock ticks toward Chatzos…   The reality is, we have been waiting 3 full weeks [&hellip

Review: Hamvorach Yisborach – Yoely Greenfeld

Review:  Hamvorach Yisborach – Yoely Greenfeld

If you have been to a wedding recently, you might have gathered that, sporadically through the event, singers like to change their pronunciation of words and sing as a typical Chassid (or Chussid). As one singer told someone, “Chassidishe is in!” Do you agree? As one not from the Chassidic sect (though I tend to [&hellip
