Links and Other News 7/10/06

Lior Gabay’s Jewishmusic.tk has some interesting clips of different artists, as well as the debut of his Jewish music online show, the Jewish Music Insider. The website design needs a lot of work – for example, in order to click on a link you can’t just click on the picture, you have to click on the words below the picture. The site also uses frames, so you can’t link directly to pages other than the home page.

I felt the most interesting interview was with Gad Elbaz, because he actually has a personality and a story behind his music. The other people interviewed were Nachman Seltzer (who?) and Udi Ulman. The show seemed to be focused around musicians based in Israel.

The site also has various clips of other artists, but beware, you’ll have to sit through a 30 second advertisement from the “sponsor” – Lior’s brother Dovid Gabay.

In other news, I recently played at a small concert with Eitan Katz. His style is very Carlebach like, and the instumentation was very simple – piano/bass, percussion and flute/saxophone. It was a different style of music than I’m used to playing, but we had a good time and made some good, inspiring music.

The most difficult part for me as a musician was the fact that we didn’t have sheet music in front of us, except for one song. It was difficult not because I didn’t know the tunes, but because I didn’t know the chord changes that Eitan played behind the tunes. I quickly picked up on his changes, but there were times where I couldn’t hear his guitar very well, and I hoped I was playing the same changes as he was.
