The Eyal Vilner Big Band Hanukkah CD Release

The Eyal Vilner Big Band Hanukkah Project offers a new and original way to celebrate the beautiful repertoire of traditional Hanukkah songs. The CD includes 4 songs and a Prelude arranged for a 16-piece jazz big band, a vocal trio, and a special guest – the Israeli flautist Itai Kris. This music is a unique blend of traditional holiday melodies influenced by jazz and swing, Israeli, Jewish and Middle Eastern music as well as Brazilian Choro and Afro-Cuban rhythms.

The CD was recorded at the Museum at Eldridge Street, a stunning building from 1887 that’s considered a National Historic Landmark. The acoustics are fantastic and add such a special touch to the recording.

There will be two CD release shows in December at the Brotherhood Synagogue and at Museum at Eldridge Street.

The CD is available for purchase on cdbaby. There is a special discount for the holiday when purchasing multiple copies. Email [email protected] for more information.
