The Bach Guild’s Jewish Music Big Bach Set?

Yes, this is it. Now, we’re applying the Bach Guild brand to a series of recordings that never were released under The Bach Guild imprint (a first for us). However, this music spotlights another role that independent labels played in the latter part of the 20th century.

Seymour Solomon (as we have mentioned endlessly) began The Bach Guild as an attempt to record all of Bach’s cantatas, stating that at the time he started there were 1 and ½ Bach cantatas listed in the Schwann Guide to Recordings. Outside the Bach Guild imprint, Seymour and his brother Maynard explored other areas of untapped repertoire.  Vanguard was created to expand beyond Bach – first into classical, then quickly into jazz and folk music.

And there we begin the Jewish music journey. The Solomon brothers created many very fine recordings celebrating Hebrew, Yiddish and Jewish culture. They looked backwards to the music of the lands where the immigrants came, and also into their current times, recording songs and works of Jewish composers like Bloch and Copland. (Sadly, due to copyright restrictions, none of those recordings are included here.) But we have a well-stocked collection, one that is almost completely new for digital release.

What we have presented here is mainly taken from the celebratory – and filled with goodies. Perhaps the crown jewels of this collection are the two Jewish folk song albums featuring Martha Schlamme. We released her practically unknown Christmas album two years ago, now we finally get into the 2nd Avenue spirit, and present the two albums she made for Vanguard in the early 1960s. Also available for the first time are the Yiddish and Hebrew folksong recordings of Netania Davrath.

Robert deCormier and his orchestra play a large role, as he did a large number of arrangements for these folk song albums, and they are arrangements strongly in the 1950s movie soundtrack tradition – perhaps a bit heavier than today’s tastes, but brimming with imagination and power. Same to be said for his orchestral recordings – and those of the Karmon Israeli Dancers and Orchestra. There’s not much intimate, reflective music here in this collection, and certainly not on these orchestral recordings.

Jan Peerce made several recordings for Vanguard, and here he performs a seder – so please be warned, there is spoken word included in this collection.

In the post-Vanguard Omega catalog we discovered some superb klezmer, and we’ve included that as well.

But now a moment to consider what we weren’t able to put in…this is one of the few “Big Bach Sets” where there was a tremdendous amount of material that we couldn’t include, due to mechanical copyright restrictions (we don’t sell any copyrighted music – or else we couldn’t sell these boxes for .99). Obvious omissions include (or exclude, really) Mischa Elman’s fine “Hebrew Melodies” album, Herschel Bernardi’s live cabaret act, and the excellent “Jewish Music in America” recital with bass Leon Lishner.

So, please enjoy our playlist with the strangest title but certainly one of the finer boxes we’ve released since the Bach Guild began.
