Composer/percussionist Roberto Rodriguez’s imaginative Cuban-Jewish fusion is some of the most charming and popular music on Tzadik. Continuing his creative reading of imaginary music from Havana’s Jewish community, Roberto draws upon several traditions in Timba Talmud, his best CD yet. Performed by a tight band of musical all-stars, Son Montuno and Guaracha meet the Jewish tradition in this beautiful and sensitive collection of Latin Klezmer.
