LP includes MP3 download card. Limited offer.
Even though Daniel Kahn has already released many albums - whether under his own name or with the band The Painted Bird - word beggar is the first album he has recorded completely alone. Musically it moves between folk, jazz and klezmer. It consists of adaptations and settings of songs and lyrics by Georges Brassens, Kadye Molodovsky, Mordechai Gebirtig, Kurt Tucholsky, Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman and Aaron Zeitlin that Kahn has developed over the years. Among them are his Yiddish versions of Bob Dylan songs and Leonard Cohen‘s „Hallelujah.“ Kahn originally had no intention of recording the album solo. But then he met Michael Fetscher, the operator of White Fir Studio, located in the middle of the Swabian Alb. When Daniel saw the studio, he decided to record the entire album live in the studio on 16-track tape in a day and a half, purely analog and without digital effects.
