Jeremiah Lockwood in Jewcy. Extract:
That night I played at Yoshi’s, the wonderful San Francisco jazz club, as part of the Idelsohn Society’s recreation of the 1961 album Mazel Tov Mis Amigos. The album was made by a bunch of great Jazz and Latin players, including Doc Cheatham and Ray Barreto, playing Yiddish standards. It was certainly a commercially motivated project, but the old record is very cool and the recreation concept is unique and fantastic. The band was led by Arturo O’Farell, a great pianist and arranger and a lovely human being. Featured on the program were a bunch of special guests, including the legend of Fanya records and of the classic New York Salsa scene of the ’60s and ’70s, Larry Harlowe. And I sang four songs.
