Saft, Jamie: Borscht Belt Studies (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Keyboard virtuoso, dub-master supreme, heavy metal guitarist, soundtrack composer, versatile arranger, master butcher and zonked madman, Jamie Saft has been responsible for some of the wildest and most soulful sounds heard on the Tzadik Jewish series. After his startling heavy metal CD Black Shabbis, he returns to the keyboard for a moody and heartfelt tribute celebrating the rich creative legacy of the Borscht Belt! Featuring six remarkable duets with the masterful clarinetist Ben Goldberg, four hypnotic solo pieces and a reggae track with his newest band the New Zion Trio this is moody, wild, and lyrical music that takes Jewish music one step further into the 21st century."-Tzadik
