Happy Music

On Friday afternoon, just before Shabbat, this happy young man knocked on our door. I asked him, "How do I know if it's any good?"

A Famed Political Pundit’s Musical Side: An Interview with Charles Krauthammer

Charles Krauthammer is widely regarded as one of the most influential political commentators in America today. A contributing editor to The Weekly Standard and The New Republic, Krauthammer is also a nightly commentator on Fox News’s Special Report with Bret Baier and a weekly panelist on PBS’s Inside Washington. Close to 250 newspapers carry his weekly column, which earned him a Pulitzer Prize in 1987.

The Groggers: It Ain’t Your Uncle Moishy’s Rock N’ Roll

It's not easy being a modern, Jewish singer/songwriter and refuse to utter a preachy note about anything, refuse to be a nice Jewish boy, and refuse to include a clarinet in your music.

The project serves as an innovative campaign for financial support of the Rubashkin Defense Fund, drawing mounting online interest by the hour.

Matisyahu: The Man, His Music, His Following

In late August, Jewish music sensation and Shlomo Carlebach/Bob Marley hybrid Matisyahu released "Light," his third album. Having enjoyed his first two albums immensely, and already humming some of Matisyahu's new tracks, I began to wax philosophical while listening to his newest compilation. I asked myself: Can we define ourselves by what we think of Matisyahu and his music?

Late Bloomer Composes In Three Styles

Not widely appreciated during his lifetime, composer Gustav Mahler famously predicted, "My time will yet come." And it did. Aaron Blumenfeld, a 77-year-old composer from the San Francisco Bay Area, hopes a similar future is in store for him - and the sooner, the better.

The Niggun In Jewish Music

In honor of Chanukah, a time of joy, I have been delving into the realm of Jewish music.

The new face of Jewish pop music wears a black hat and jacket and a long beard.

Requesting – “One Thing I Ask”

Seth Nadel is active - so much so that his guitar playing can be called "kinetic music," to borrow Agam's term.
