Fima Ephron: Hasidic Folk Song


Sign in to view read count
Though it lacks many of the fascinating David Torn-produced, sonic manipulations strewn throughout Soul Machine (Tzadik, 2001), "Hasidic Folk Song" is emblematic of the ethno-electric-jazz explorations on bassist Fima Ephron's debut as a leader and a sizzler to boot. The track features Ephron's former Lost Tribe cohorts Adam Rogers and David Binney, as well as Edward Simon on keys and Jim Black on drums.
