Notes and Editorial Reviews

Setting the Yiddish poetry of the revered Civil Rights activist and Jewish philosopher Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel to music, Basya Schechter has created a rich new collection of Yiddish songs, colorful arrangements featuring many of the downtown jewish scene's greatest musicians. This exciting project blends Pharaoh's Daughter's soulful grooves and lush instrumentation with Basya's lovely voice and Heschel's powerful poetry.
