Mamaloshen ()


Documenting the Jewish-American experience in song, Mandy Patinkin weaves a rich tapestry of legend, oral history and popular song, all in Yiddish. The most interesting tunes on Mamaloshen include Paul Simon's "American Tune" and "Maria" from West Side Story which become perfectly adapted to Patinkin's use. The lush arrangements by Paul Ford lend a sweeping cinematic air to the project, making it at once humble and grand, much like the dreams of millions of immigrants. ~ Tim Sheridan, Rovi
