Shabes mixtape

Great songs:

Tom Russell: Gallo del Cielo (Americana from La Linea); Original Dixieland Jass Band: Tiger Rag (jazz for ball players) ; Taraf De Haidouks: Tot Taraful (gypsy mayhem); Tony Bennett: I Get Along Without You Very Well (old white guys still got it).

Cool Jewish music:

Gevolt (Yiddish metal); Rachel Zapen (bossa nova inspired covers of 80s classics, etc); Daphna Sadeh and the Voyagers (avante-Sephardic on Tzadik); John Zorn (channelling Ornette Coleman channelling Freud); El Gusto (North African chaabi nostalgia).
