A regular drummer with John Scofield, Dave Douglas, Steven Bernstein and many others, Ben Perowsky is a familiar name to jazz fans the world over. Joined here by keyboard sensation Uri Caine, one of the most acclaimed young pianists on the scene, Ben’s first recording under his own name on Tzadik is an eclectic take on the songs he used to sing during his formative years at Jewish summer camp. Exotic percussion, twisted arrangements and several brilliant original compositions make Camp Songs a swinging delight. Wild, nostalgic, and completely unique.
