Product Information

This CD, the second of original works by Sy Kushner, illustrates the diversity of his music. From the majestic “March” to the reflective and unsettling “Tranquillatease”, from experiments in time in “The Meter is Running”, “Pentaklez”, and “3(+1)”, to the klezmer bass piece, “To D.J. from S.K.,” Sy displays great variety in his musical palette. There is also a piece dedicated to The Bronx, New York neighborhood in which he grew up (“Soundview Waltz”). The soulfulness and spirituality of “Kush Nigun” shows the Chassidic connection in Sy’s music. Influences ranging from rock in “A is C” to both klezmer and Israeli folk dance in “Back to A” are present on this CD. Sy takes us on a multifaceted musical journey but always with Jewish sensibilities. So fasten your seatbelt and come along for the musical journey.
