From what I’ve been hearing about this CD so far I think we may on the verge of something that will rock the very foundation of Jewish music. Read the official description from Sameach’s website.
Make sure to tune into tomorrow’s Podcast to hear the long-awaited, world-exclusive, premiere of Yossi Green’s new CD called “The 8th Note.”
This album will feature 13 brand new songs from the most popular composer in Jewish music today. This elegant production, produced by Yossi Tyberg, has been in the making for the last four years and hopes to redefine the standards for Jewish music while developing fresh sounds and styles beyond what has become a business consisting of ‘wedding’ standards.
Regarding the texts and lyrics of the songs, Yossi Green, who is the one to have introduced us to lyrics from interesting and original sources like Tanya, Aderaba, Dedoh Bai, etc., tells us that “Every single one of these 13 songs, B”H, has a specific, original message and “chap!”The amazing list of featured guests appearing on this groundbreaking album to sing duets with Yossi represent the artists that have defined Jewish Music in the last 25 years as well as the new artists that are breaking ground at this time. They have all come together united as one in a remarkable show of Hakoras Hatoiv to Yossi for writing many of their hit songs as well as jump starting many of their careers. The list of names singing duets with Yossi include Mordechai Ben David, Avraham Fried, Lipa, Cantor I.M. Helfgot, Shloime Gertner, Ohad, Chaim Yisroel, Lev Tahor, AKA Pella, and Mo Kiss.
The arrangers that worked with Yossi on this project represent a list of talent never before presented on one CD. The presence of such luminaries as Daniel Freiberg, Mona Rosenblum, Moshe Laufer, Leib Yakov Rigler, Momy Levy, Shai Bachar and Ilya Lishinski guarantee an explosion of sounds and styles never heard before in our genre.
The different musicians and bands that actually played the music on this CD bring an authenticity and ethnicity never experienced before.The title/theme song, The 8th Note, talks about a world of Yemos Hamoshiach that sees the 7-note scale expanded into a mysterious 8-note scale. This song will feature AKA Pella and Yossi singing an unforgettable duet. In Israel, the title song of this CD will be called Hatav Hashmini where Ohad and Yossi are singing this unforgettable duet in Hebrew.
The song Anovim Anovim that Yossi wrote about 10 years ago which was never recorded and still had broken all convention by becoming popular throughout the Jewish world as a result of MBD and Yossi singing it once in concert, has finally found its home and has been properly recorded.
This CD will be out very soon. Stay tuned to the Sameach Music website for further details including the debut of the album cover and an official demo sampler. Make sure to come back here on Wednesday to download the Sameach Music Podcast to hear the debut of one of the songs from this album.
This really sounds amazing, and I can’t wait to hear more about.
