Wonderful review of Shlomo Carlebach's Songs of Peace released last October 2009 on Sojourn. And Jack Z. was great to listen and write about the recording. Here's the link to the post here.
Shlomo Carlebach New Release
A new Shlomo Carlebach recording, "Songs of Peace", with previously unreleased performances recorded live in 1973, is in stores as of October 27th and distributed in the US and Canada by Sony/RED and available here as well. Known as the "Father of Modern Jewish Music", Shlomo Carlebach died fifteen years ago - but his legacy lives on due to the continued playing and singing of his songs by millions of people worldwide. Neshama Carlebach, his daughter, has also played an integral role with her active promotion and performing of her father's music. With this recording, Neshama and the Estate of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach have collaborated with Sojourn Records to produce these fantastic recordings that were only dis covered in the last two years. Sojourn Records is honored to be a part of this release and believes that this music is extraordinary - an offering from a man no longer here, recorded over thirty-five years ago - yet strangely of this moment in time.
