No one does it quite like Shapiro! Blending Soul and R&B with the Jewish tradition, Paul Shapiro’s three CDs on Tzadik are some of the most joyful and critically acclaimed releases on the label. His fourth release is another romp in the wild and wooly world of Rhythm and Jews, this time featuring a tight touring quartet performing Paul’s original compositions in the Jewish bag. Distinguished by the searing guitar of Marc Ribot, this is a fabulous quartet of Downtown masters tearing loose on Paul’s catchy Jewish hooks and riffs. Paul’s fourth Tzadik CD is his best yet!
