Thanks for joining me for another roundup of some great Jewish music. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover, as some really great new Jewish music has been released very recently. Let’s get started!
The Dance Collection 2 – After the popularity of the Dance Collection Vol. 1, MRM Music has finally released a sequel! This album features artists such as Netanel Israel, Sruli Broncher, Amiran Dvir, Mendy J, Chaim Devash, Elad Shaer, Baruch Naftel, and more! With a diverse mix of Israeli and more mainstream American dance music, there’s sure to be something great on this album for everyone.
Yaaleh – Tzvi Silberstein – Tzvi has been hitting it out of the park ever since the release of his debut album, Simcha, and this album is no different. Producers Doni Gross and Yitzy Waldner teamed up to put together this masterpiece, and Tzvi’s vocals just seem to get better and better with every album. Most of you have probably seen the hilarious music video that was released for the single off the album Todah, but there’s a lot more of great music where that came from! This is an album you will not want to miss.
Storm The World – Rabbi Ruvi New – When an album includes Bentzy Marcus as its producer, and features by Yossi Green, Benny Friedman, and Eli Marcus, together with some amazing English songs that contain great messages, you’re sure to have a winner! I have had this album on repeat, and I have a feeling it might stay that way for a while. The vocalists throughout this album not only sound great, but they do a great job of really giving over the messages they are singing, which makes for a special listening experience.
Ein Od Milvado – Amram Adar – Amram made a splash some years back with his debut album, Baruch Hashem. At the time, the hit “Halaila” made the rounds through the Jewish music world and was even used as his first music video. Then Amram’s Hebrew version of “Depacito” came crashing through the music scene, and has been played and performed multiple times by Jewish singers and DJ’s alike. Amram is back with his second album entitled Ein Od Milvado. On this album is everything you could hope for from a vocalist like Amram, including some powerful Hebrew ballads, a touch of sephardic tunes, chazzanus, and of course, some great dancing music!
Menagen – New York Boys Choir – The New York Boys Choir has always been amazing at keeping a signature sound, never seeming to emulate any other group and always staying true to their original style. This album is no different. The New York Boys Choir, led by the super talented Yitzy Bald, is back with Menagen, which packs a whopping 16 songs! Featured on this album are some of the hits we’ve seen released with music videos throughout the last while, as well as some original tunes that are sure to keep you dancing.
In Vald – Fishel Bressler – While Fishel Bresler is not considered a “mainstream” artist within the Jewish music scene, there is musical brilliance in every track of this album. As a student of the famous Andy Statman, Fishel has been playing guitar, clarinet, flute, harmonica, and a few other instruments for years, both as the band leader of his own musical ensemble and as a member of some of the finest klezmer ensembles found today. Fishel has finally released his album filled with a number of his own compositions. This album is not your typical album, but for a lover of music, this album is sure to cover all of the bases. From emotion-filled niggunim to songs, you’ll find yourself tapping along to the rhythm. As a longtime fan of Fishel’s, I’m excited about the release of this album. Pick up your copy today on iTunes or your favorite digital distribution site!
