The pioneer of Latin-Jewish fusion Irving Fields turns 92 this year and he is playing better than ever. Reworking Jewish classics into the Latin mold with the aid of Tzadik regulars Greg Cohen and Roberto Rodriguez, Irving has created a beautiful program of mambos, rumbas and solo pieces that will delight young and old. With an incredible depth of feeling and the touch and phrasing of an absolute master, My Yiddishe Mama shows us all where Radical Jewish Culture comes from and where it is going in one bold gesture. An absolute classic.
