Hasidic New Wave - The Complete Recordings 5 x CDs

SKU TZ 8171-5
One of the (admittedly many) great bands to emerge from the Knitting Factory scene in the mid to late 80s. A distinctive, weird fusion of jazz, avant-garde, fusion, and Jewish musics. "A 5 CD set at a bargain price, this is the complete studio recordings (1996–2001) by one of the major ensembles in the renaissance of Jewish Jazz. Released 1996–2001, the music embraces an intense mixture of ethnic and cosmopolitan sounds, fusing spiritual songs from Hasidic dynasties to funk and jazz, Arabic dances with rock horas and freylekhs with intense improvisation. Including an additional CD of rare recordings and a 28-pg booklet filled with ephemera, remembrances by band members and more, this is an essential document of Radical Jewish Culture. Newly remastered, HNW’s alternatingly ecstatic and meditative performances, imbued with joy and passion sound better than ever!"
