Black performers, Jewish music meet on “Sabbath”

Black sabbathMazel tov: “Black Sabbath: The Secret History of Black-Jewish Relations,” a collection of African-American performers interpreting the music of Jews and Jewish Americans, will be issued Sept. 14 by the Idelsohn Society For Musical Preservation, a New York-based non-profit organization devoted to telling the story of Jewish history through song.

From the earliest days of modern show biz, black musicians worked closely with Jewish songwriters and managers. This 15-track collection makes the connection explicit; most revelatory are the numbers in which black stars sing familiar compositions in Yiddish, Hebrew and Aramaic.
