Album Notes
These recordings capture Joey Weisenberg and the Hadar Ensemble performing "Jewish Spirituals" live at Brooklyn's oldest synagogue. You can hear older styles of Jewish music - nigunim (wordless melodies), z'mirot (Sabbath-table melodies), choral music, and traditional musach (prayer chant) - organically melding with the spontaneous improvisation, liberated harmonies and indie soul music of the Brooklyn soundscape.

All music composed and directed by Joey Weisenberg.
All words are traditional, except "Rise Sweet Waters" by Joey Weisenberg.
Recorded Live in the Choir Loft at the Kane Street Synagogue on May 6-7, 2014.
Engineered, Mixed, and Mastered by Don Godwin.
CD Design/Layout: Ilusha Tsinadze.
Paper Cut Illustration: Andrew Benincasa.
