CD cover- Sy Kushner Jewish Music Ensemble

I did the photographs for a new CD of original compositions by the Sy Kushner Jewish Music Ensemble, entitled "Volume Four: Klez, Kush, and Son."

Sy is a master klezmer musician and composer, and the work is well worth a close listen.

The album also features his son Aaron Kushner. plus Marty Confurious, Aaron Alexander, Ken Gross, Ken Malz, and other gifted players.

You can preview and purchase the CD from Nulite Music.

You can view some other photographs I made of of Sy and Aaron here:
