DigitalJason77,

I'm throwing a Hanukkah get together and I stumbled upon this cd and I was quite impressed. I didn't realize they were doing things like this with Haunkkah music. The repetoir of Hanukkah music has always been very limited so I was very pleased to find these big band versions of these songs. Kenny's got a great Sinatra-esq voice and the songs are very fun. I recommend this for anybody who's looking for a little fun at their next Hanukkah/Holiday get together.

Such Chazanus!

yoyoma,

Yasher ko'ach! Kol hakavod. I love this guy, Kenny Ellis! He is awesome! Such chazanus! He adds his own unique flavor to jazz up the traditional Chanukkah melodies. Such a mechaiyah to sit and listen to Cantor Kenny while I take my shvitz.

richperryrules,

I hate to say it, but this is just another corny attempt at "jazzing up" Jewish tunes. It makes the same old songs even more than they are in the first place. As a jazz musician and a Jew, there are definite way to combine the two without dipping into the realm of tawdry. Several of the tempos on this album are the same with stock orchestrations. It's good for children ages 4 and below, but doesn't really have much in the way of interest.
