ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
KOL B'SEDER: A LEGENDARY JEWISH-AMERICAN MUSIC DUO

They helped define a spiritual search for a generation of Jews, thus launching a new era in Jewish-American music. They wrote (and performed) songs that are now standards in synagogues around the world. Kol B'Seder, the legendary folk/pop/jazz/rock duo of Cantor Jeff Klepper and Rabbi Dan Freelander, has released Snapshots: The Best of Kol B'Seder, Vol. 1, a CD compilation of some of their greatest hits, including a new recording of Shalom Rav, a beloved tune that has made its way into many Reform Jewish services and celebrated its 30th "birthday" in 2004.

Beginning in the early 1970s, Klepper and Freelander, then song leaders in the Reform youth movement, composed some of the first contemporary Jewish-American song "hits," infused with the musical spirit of their generation. Their style blended Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Simon and Garfunkel, Motown and other new sounds with the fervor of Israeli and Chassidic song and the melodic and harmonic sophistication of the Beatles. Combine that with a deep commitment to spirituality and renewing the worship experience, and you have a potent mix of music that moved thousands to sing and pray.

Snapshots contains some of Kol B'Seder's best known and most influential songs, including six previously unreleased tracks, plus archival clips from their earliest years, which makes the CD a true collectors item. For the CD, Klepper unearthed a recording made by the pair as they composed Shalom Rav thirty years ago (secret: it's a hidden track) and a long forgotten radio interview with the duo in their early days. Included are: Lo Alecha, In Every Generation, Modeh Ani, Or Zarua, Oseh Shalom, Ma Tovu and many more, 19 songs in all plus extras.

Today, Jeff Klepper is Cantor at Temple Sinai in Sharon, MA, teaching and performing as a solo artist in addition to Kol B'seder. Dan Freelander is Vice President for the Union for Reform Judaism, and is active in the many worlds of Jewish music.

The pair reunited recently for a concert at Temple Sinai in celebration of Shalom Rav's anniversary and their CD release. The concert featured nearly a dozen Boston-area friends and colleagues who performed with the duo. "On this big anniversary of Shalom Rav, I thought it was important to play a concert in the place we started out," Klepper said, noting that many of Kol B'Seder's most popular musical hits were composed in the Boston area. "Our goal is to bring people together in joy and spirit. We're not stopping now."

Awesome!
I absolutely love the CD! I have been looking for a comprehensive CD with liturgical music. I play it in my car on the way to work everyday.

michael fenster

Always Great Music
Any album done by jeff klepper and dan friedlander is 5 stars plus. the songs they wrote and provided the music for was a big part of my life when i attended camp eisner from 1979-1983 as well as numerous camp kutz conclaves as a member of LIFTY. this music i just love hearing. the music always brings a smile to my face anytime i hear it played by me or anyone else who has it. In short, this music rocks!!!!!!!!

Nina Jaroslaw

A Mega-Blast of Ruach!
Full of joy, spirit, gorgeous melodies and, for this Eisner alum (and now mother of four) exceptionally powerful and meaningful memories, I recommend this CD to anyone who yearns for a tuneful Jewish vibe. A must for kids!

Linda Elman

Love the Music & CD Baby
Bought the album for Yesh Kochavim, and was not disappointed. Danny's voice, and Jeff's music are wonderful. The mixture of the old and new is a lot of fun--I especially enjoyed the interview segments--if only they were at the same volume as the rest of the album!

Betty Goldberg

A must for parents, children, grandchildren.
Our children grew up with the music of Kol B'Seder (Jeff Klepper was our Cantor for 2 years), now it's time to introduce the grandchildren. Every track on this "best of" has something to offer, from the music to the radio interview clips. Beautiful melodies we still sing in the synagogue, and more. A must for any Jewish music library.

Cindy Kalish

The CD is fabulous!
This CD is great! It is a wonderful compilation of Kol B'Seder songs and I especially love listening to the last track of Shalom Rav as it was originally being composed. My 7 year old daughter has been wanting to listen to it everytime that we get into the car. Prior to that, her favorite CD was Hilary Duff . . . so her taste is markedly improving as far as I can tell!

The Fensters

A Family Tradition
Three generations enjoying the music of Kol B'Seder. Our children were at Eisner Camp when Danny and Jeff were song leaders.They also participated in LIFTY and sang their music.
Jeff and Danny came to our Temple and performed for us all.
Our grandchildren are now at Eisner Camp enjoying the same wonderful music. What could be better??

Laurie Sukel

Blast from the past!
Wow, did that bring back great memories! I'll always be grateful to Danny and Jeff for beautiful melodies that still make Shabbat special. They instantly transport me back to the good old days at Eisner. Kol B'seder -- kol hakavod!!

Carolyn

Waiting for Volume 2!
I absolutely loved this CD. Kol B'Seder is great, and their selection for the CD is perfect! I'm hoping there will be a Volume 2!

Ilene

We love it!
Kol B'Seder recently performed at our synagogue. Our 11 year old daughter is in the youth choir which had the honor of singing with them. We bought the CD for our daughter and she has played it and sang along many times since then. It's a real gem!
