Cantor Zell presents The Times They Are A-Changin’….Trends &  Innovations in Jewish Music

As far back as the 16th-century, Jewish music has adapted and transformed to changing musical interests and tastes. Today is no different. The emergence of technology has accelerated the process of change. Part 2 of this lesson offers three representative case studies of those whose music takes up this legacy and today stand at the forefront of an increasingly diverse Jewish American music scene. Through the examination of the lives and musical contributions of Gerald Cohen, Basya Schechter, and the leaders of Nava Tehila, we introduce three different approaches to making new Jewish music. We also explore the influence they have had on the direction of American Jewish music innovation within three larger streams in Jewish music: Western Art music (Classical), World music, and spirituality.
