Ani Ma-Amin

Debbie Friedman leads a group of Minnesota musicians in a set of songs that comprise, in her words, a “musical montage spanning generations of Jewish liturgical and biblical vision”. Debbie’s voice is strong and sometimes the language sounds almost Japanese in nature. And so it kind of reminds me of Happy End in instrumentation and melody, while the vocals arrangements (all done by Debbie) can be as complex as The Free Design. The lp has a good consistent vibe, save for a few upbeat “jazzy” numbers. Recorded at Sound 80.

“Ayliyahu”
