Shim Schechter has been writing music for over 40 year, He would write them on his lunchbreak, on the train, cooking the soup for shabbos or any time an idea would force it's way onto his consciounsess. Some of the songs were original, some were existing tunes hihacked for his unique brand of madcap lyricism. A talented vocalist, Schechter performed in a Doo-Wop group in the 50's and dabbled in the Israeli folk scene in the early 80's. His own music was known only to his family until his daughter Basya (leader of the popular NYC based Jewish fusion group 'Pharaoh's Daughter')employed some of her top sidemen for a recording session with her dad as a father's day gift. The session was recorded in drummer Aaron Johnston's Tribecca apartment/studio and consisted of a few songs chosen by Schechter and arranged by his son Yisroel. The group consisted of Schechter singing, Johnston on drums, Shanir blumenkrantz on upright bass, and Yisroel on guitars. Some tracks are pop songs from the 60's through the 80's adapted for Schechter's lyrics, some traditional melodies and original tunes as well. The result is a highly likeable organic mix of Jewish based ecclecticism which draw from a range of styles broad enough as to make classification beyond 'Jewish' difficult.
