A tribute which has been seven years in the making by Kramer to the famous Brill Building in New York City and the Jewish composers who made it a heart of songwriting for decades.

The Brill Building

Kramer: The Brill Building (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Seven years in the making, Kramer has conjured what just might be his greatest CD ever-a brilliant tribute to the Jewish composers who made the legendary Brill Building in Times Square one of the centers of popular music songwriting for decades. From Bacharach to Carole King, Neil Diamond, Leiber and Stoller and Doc Pomus, these are the songs that made performers into superstars. Deeply personal yet wholly universal, Kramer captures all the poignancy and humor of these timeless classics. Welcome to The Brill Building!"-Tzadik
