What are your thoughts and opinions?
MBD is a singer and Yossi Green is a composer.
Personally I’ve never been such a fan of Yossi, while MBD is the premier jewish talent. I never really connected to Yossi’s songs, while MBD really rocks my neshoma. Not even a close call by me.
Additionally, I once met Yossi’s grandson (really interesting guy. Like, really, really, interesting.), and he told me that while his grandfather has worked extensively with MBD, Yossi himself wouldn’t compare himself to the great MBD, saying quote “I couldn’t hold a solitary candle to such an insanely talented artist”. Do with that what you will.
MBD is lighter on his feet, but Yossi delivers a mean left hook!
I like Yossi Green
Thats sort of like the question of “who is a bigger gadol”?
Really depends on the metric you are using in “gadlus”. Obviously MBD is the “bigger” name (commercially) has more recordings, has appeared at more “big” events, etc. Yossi has probably a more diverse and complex set of compositions. Again, it really depends on how you measure.
