Paul Shapiro’s fat tenor sound has graced the music of such diverse artists as Lou Reed, Michael Jackson, Nyorican Soul, the Microscopic Septet and Brooklyn Funk Essentials of which he was a founding member. On Tzadik he can be heard on two of the label’s most beloved recordings, Steven Bernstein’s Diaspora Soul and Daniel Zamier’s Children of Israel. For his Tzadik debut, Paul has brought together a remarkable band of long-time associates to perform loungey, old-school jazz renditions of seven Jewish classics and two moody originals. Midnight Minyan is a treasure for young and old.
