Songs For The Jewish-American Jet Set [coll] – [Idelsohn Society For Musical Preservation]

Oh for the days of vacationing in the Catskills, staying in the luxury hotels of the Borscht Belt, partying all night in clubs on the Florida coast, flying over to Tel Aviv for a rejuvenating week: such was the life of the Jewish-American Jet Set. The amazing Idelsohn Society has set to preserving some of this feeling through selections of music coming from this time in the 1950′s and 1960′s. Honoring the Tikva Records label that continuously released this music, the listener is treated to 20 selections of sounds that vary from kitsch to twist to more traditional-ish styles of Jewish-American sounds. Jewish cowboys, how to date orthodox,conservative or reformed ladies, or learning the difference between a Litvak and a Galitz, it’s all here. The night club orchestrations are superb, making each number bump, swish and sway the night away. Enjoy and mazel tov.
