Finally, this week's Downtown Music Gallery newsletter describes Frank London's latest.
FRANK LONDON - Hazonos (Tzadik 8102) More beautiful and evocative arrangements of Jewish liturgical music from the ever-creative and indefatigable mind of Frank London, one of the most important musicians out of the New Jewish Renaissance. Frank's distinctive trumpet has never sounded more lyrical, and is accompanied here by the sparkling rhythm section of Anthony Coleman, David Chevan and Gerald Cleaver. Joining Frank on several tracks is chazzan Jacob Mendelson, whose soaring voice gives a unique spiritual quality to what is perhaps Frank's greatest and most passionate recording to date.
