    Chaim Dovid, Yosef Karduner, Soulfarm, C. Lanzbom & Noah Solomon, Neshama Carlebach, a shtikle Simply Tsfat and recently liking Diaspora Yeshiva Band (from my parents generation). Also, Eitan and Shlomo Katz as well, they add freshness to the genre.

    For the uninitiated, these are Carlebach-style musicians. Lanzbom and Solomon are really worth checking out. They are MASTER musicians with great talent and excellent guitar work. Most of their CD’s (that they produce together) are Carlebach inspired guitar pieces. The music just hits your heart and soul in just the right places. It’s real chizuk… Hearing them live is just heavenly!

    The “ay, ya, yay” music on today’s Jewish music scene just doesn’t reach me. It honestly sounds more like electronica than music, and I have a hard time listening to it. I take my Jewish music seriously and for some reason just can’t connect to modern Jewish pop. The one exception is some of Yaakov Shwekey’s music.

    I heard Shloimy Steinamn at a chassuna in New York. I would say the name of the families if I could so people could recognize the singer if they were there. (if they wont delete it the chossons last name was Gellis). He was singing with Shloimy Daskal which I know has CD’s out in stores. He’s also very good.

    I have 2 cd’s from a singer called Yitzhak Simcha. I can listen to them over and over again. Yaacov Shweky of course is unbeliveable. The power and feeling he sings with is amazing and it really reaches into your soul. I heard him sing at a wedding in the summer, I thought it was a tape, my friend told me it really was him live!! Avraham Fried, MBD, Dovid Gabay, Baruch Levine, Shalshales/ junior.

    Just to clear things up Brooklyn19 and Joseph.

    I spell it “Favourite” but I’m using Firefox which has American Spellcheck, but it only checks spelling on the main typing box and not on the topic heading therefore the heading is “favourite” and the main box is “favorite” after being corrected!!!

    Well observed both of you!

    “I think he is conflicted between his British residency and his American thinking. “

    American Thinking? Is that what impression I give??? I’ve never touched American soil believe it or not. It’s definitely on my agenda though!

    LOL – Chaim Israel (in the can for a driving offense) and……………………..LIPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

    Gad Elbaz is far from being a jailbird; Matisyahu does not ACT IF he belongs in the nuthouse…..or is someone conflating Matisyahu with Chaim Israel’s present “yeshiva” which is called Maasiyahu :).

  • #1055116

    sorry to spoil the party here, but most of these artists have in some way or another stolen (borrowed) music from pop culture

    Take for example:

    1) Lev Tahor’s Asher Bara – the initial guitar solo, and the lead towards the end of the song have been taken from the Scorpion’s “Rock you like a hurricane”

    As well, the orchestra at the beggining, and during the interlude in the middle of the song is also copied from a concert that they did while in berlin … youtube the song (thats how i found out), and pick the live in berlin 03

    2) MBD – has copied Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music (“Close every door to me” in Joseph and the technicolor dream coat)

    I could go on …

    Which one?

    The former – that is public knowledge and I purposely added why he was incarcerated. I actually believe his incarceration was unfair; a hefty fine and community service, including recording a song, free of charge, about driving safely, would have done much more good.

    The latter – his whole success is derived from his meshugge act and off-center costumes and I am only promoting him free of charge LOL.

    YOU.

    You are what’s happening to our generation. You dont like his voice? Dont listen! You think his songs are not Jewish? So certainly dont listen!

    But to publically say another persons voice is not good, especially when its his parnassah, that is certainly wrong.

    And you are worried about Frum Yidden discussing the Superbowl (See Sports thread). Please. Check your Lashon Hara at the door before giving mussar to others…

    me and music= 1.

    baruch levine is very popular. he’s very hartzig.

    nothing can compare to MBD – he is truly the king of jewish music. if you go back and listen to his old english songs (miracles, let my ppl go etc.) you’ll see they’re all classics= stood the test of time. the lyrics can describe and touch every jew at any point in their lives… throughout generations. All his other songs still feel fresh and alive, even though they’re 15, 20 & 25 years old (no- i wasn’t born when a lot of these were composed)

    fried’s slow songs can really make you break down and think/cry. he also inspires a great deal of hope and positive feelings

    one boy nobody has mentioned: MEYDAD TASA (israeli) check out his latest cd on mostly music.com: Al Naharot Bavel. his voice is TOP, and the way he sings…. a taste of olam habah

    Daskal is superb and shwekey has definitely made a huge name for himself

    how bout oif simchas and gershon verobah: I know they’re not your most eidel singers, but they really have pizzaz and energy when they sing and i just can’t resist (my yetzer harah)

    also very close to the top of the list are mendy & yisroel werdyger, chaim yisrael, isaac honig, country yossi and lipa

    am i allowed to mention Yanni?? mostly music sells his cd’s- does that make it “jewish”? and if you like yanni, of course you like yaron gershovsky (like me :})

    Syrian – I’m seven time zones ahead of you and Shwekey and a 2 1/2 hour flight away from the nearest source of arak (not counting my attempt at making it from 96% and aniseed this summer). I am far more a fan of arak than of Shwekey, so there!

    Didn’t you get the joke? big Deal…(not that I know the difference between Oakhurst, Elberon, Deal and Long Branch as I have never been to the area).

  • #1055198

    well u sure know a whole lot- knowing that deal, oakhurst , elberon….is ner=ar each other. i did get the joke.

    mchemtob – I LOVE his arak! I used to drink the amber one and I was lucky to have any left for myself when I brought it to shul for kiddush! Mordechai Kairey is a friend of a friend of mine (and our mutual friend just happens to be the owner of my old local liquor store!)

    But his site is down – is Zachlawi still out there? I just may fly in for The Big Event (and to get some stuff out of storage) and if I do and there’s Zachlawi around I will bring back a case. I have connections in customs here but if I ship it will cost me too much including at least 2 bottles out of the case to get it through. (if I bring it in personally it will just cost me the 2 bottles LOL!)

    Since the original question is not limited to Jewish singers, my favorites voices are Jussi Bjorling, Benianimo Gigli, Riccardo Stracciairi, Josepf Schmidt, Maria Callas, Nellie Melba, Titto Ruffo, Sam Ramey, Richard Tucker, Beverly Sills and Leontyne Price. Sorry, but opera singers are jsut better singers than anyone else out there. My favorite Jewish voices singnig Jewish music are Leib Glantz, Moshe Ganchoff, all the Koussevitsky brothers, Pierre Pinchik, Samual Malavsky, Israel Alter, David Moshe Steinberg, David Roitman, Moshe Stern, Zvee Aroni and many other great chazzanim.

    Syrian: in all the articles about him online he is referred to as Mordechai. My friend did not mention his name; he only told me that he met the owner of Zachlawi at a show and they got to know each other so that my friend got some of the first Zachlawi available.

    But is it still available and being produced?

    The singers are all opera singers including some who are prohibited to men by most poskim due to kol isha issues. The Jewish voices are chazzonim mostly of prior generations. (I’d rather listen to a vacuum with a defective fan belt than just about any of the opera singers and some of the chazzonim).

  • #1055208

    oh, could be, just everyone in deal calls him marty…… but im not sure if they still produce zachlawi, i actually didnt see it in a while but doesnt mean anything bc as i said b4 noone in my house drinks so dont really know…..

    I know for yrs we’re calling him marty hen one day i go to his house to pick up boxes and tape from the gmach(eliminate din by doing hessed!) and he tell me it’s mordechai from now on. Have to respect it….but they still haven’t moved to lkwd yet so maybe marty will make a comeback.

    It’s no secret that Dovid Gabay picked lyrics for his hit song “Legabay” to be oponymous, meaning it is supposed to hint at his name as well. So I pulled out my michlol maaramrim upesgamim to see what other “legabay” words he could have used. Truth be told, it’s slim pickings. I saw 2 others. One was about when gold or silver is condsidered produce instead fo money for transactions, and not too inspiring. the other one was “legabay mili deavuha, katan hu”- a grown man, in regards to his father’s estate, is considered a minor. not that inspirational either, but it fits the tune…

    “digidididatam datam, legabay miLI’ de’aVU’ha katan hu…”

    “I was just at Bar Mitzva and a song came on I felt I was at a disco.”

    I was listening to JM in the AM wednesday morning and a song comes on that was using a tune from the movie shrek (the tune was popularized by the movie, but was out even longer).

    “How permissive is it to take questionable/treif songs and make it kosher?”

    This is not a psak halacha, just my opinion. If your going to listen to the billy joel tune “because its a catchy tune” (just like you read the magazine for the articles) buy the CD and

    Shlomo Carlebach remains my all time favorite. He may not have had the smoothest voice with the greatest range or the catchiest tunes with the hippest beats, but for music that is inspiring and uplifting, I still find him to be my favorite. R’ Abish Brodt is not far behind.

    Big Yehuda Green fan.

    In my opinion he sings straight from the heart. Another great singer would be Baruch Levine, beautiful songs and he also sings straight from the heart. They dont have the best voices but the music touches you.
