For the recording sessions, Chaim blended old running buddies Loudon Wainwright, vocals, David Mansfield violin & slide guitar with a distinguished group of newfound accomplices, including C.J. Camerieri trumpet Erik Friedlander cello, Will Holshouser accordion, Matt Munisteri guitar, and Marcus Rojas tuba & euphonium.
As author/producer Joe Boyd has noted, “the purchasers of this recording are in for a treat.”
For many years Chaim Tannenbaum has been bugged by his friends and loved ones to step out and shine, which is to say, make a record, his own record. Now, thanks to the good graces, determination, and solid sense of his producer, Dick Connette, that has finally come to pass. It’s a wonderful thing.
