ON SANDCATCHERS (Chant)

"I was quite moved by the music.  The melodies are interesting and the harmonic accompaniment is at times beautifully haunting.  Sandcatchers is bringing a new sound pallette to the genre"   

-Ara Dinkjian, oud virtuoso

"[Sandcatchers brings] a convincing blend of Near Eastern classical and Americana"

-John Schaefer, WNYC

 

 

ON PITOM (Tzadik)

A rocking band performing catchy, hooky compositions that both pay tribute to and challenge the Jewish tradition...Pitom is a hard-edged new addition to the legacy of Radical Jewish Culture.”

​-John Zorn

 

"Equal parts jazz school, seminary school and Nirvana's 'School'"

-The Village Voice

 

"A dazzling debut"

-The Wall Street Journal

 

ON SCHIZOPHONIA: CANTORIAL RECORDINGS REIMAGINED (Blue Thread)

"Doesn't pull any punches while slapping around the Jewish liturgical tradition" 
-Relix magazine

 

"A post-modern approach to Jewish sacred music...this set should appeal equally to open minded jazzers, fans of Yiddishkeit and downtown habitues"

-Downbeat magazine

 

"So far past unimaginable that sets up an entirely new kind of individualism in music...wild, truly wild" 

-The Buffalo News

 

"Unsurprisingly spectacular"

-PopMatters

 

"Some of the best Psychadelic rock I've heard in a long while" 

-Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

-New Sandcatchers album is in production!

 

THE PIECES BROKEN is a new duo project from world renowned pianist Marilyn Lerner and guitarist Yoshie Fruchter. Combining the minimalist chamber jazz sensibility inspired by albums like the seminal Bill Evans/Jim Hall duo recordings and Jewish compositional tropes from their klezmer backgrounds, The Pieces Broken is a truly unique and unparalleled musical voice.
