US Price $16.00
A fascinating tribute, the first outside of Israel, to one of the most original and important composers of modern Jewish music, whose hits spanned over six decades, from the 1930s to the 1990s. Born in Moscow in 1914, Sasha Argov began composing during the Palmach period in Israel and he quickly became one of Israel’s most prolific and beloved composers. Everyone knew and sang Argov’s melodies, from the ultra orthodox haredim to the average Jew on the street yet outside of Israel his music is barely known. This fourth release of the thought-provoking Great Jewish Music series presents an all-star lineup of Tzadik regulars, and some very special guests.
