Lights... Cameras... Dreidels! In August 2008, Craig Taubman gathered an eclectic group of the Jewish community's most beloved and exciting artists for a wonderful live Chanukah concert at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center in Los Angeles. Filmed before a live audience, "Lights" was first aired on Public Television station across the country during the 2008 Chanukah season. This wonderful CD captures the joyous spirit of that concert and puts a new spin on Chanukah with dynamic performances from some of the best in Jewish music.
Internationally acclaimed musician and producer Craig Taubman is joined by singer-songwriter Michelle Citrin, the Grammy Award-winning Klezmatics, jazz artist Dave Koz, cantor Alberto Mizrahi, kosher-gospel singer Joshua Nelson, Emmy Award-winning actress Mare Winningham, multi-instrumentalist Josh Nelson, and others. Representing a wide array of musical styles from cantorial to rock 'n roll, Sephardic to folk and bluegrass, "Lights" is an experience that blends colorful Jewish traditions of yesterday, while creating new traditions for today and tomorrow.
