Dave Soldier brings a worldly feel to his latest release - Zajal / JP's MUSIC BLOG

A trip to Spain in 2004, inspired world-renowned jazz composer and instrumentalist Dave Soldier to create an album of music performed in the languages of Hebrew, Arabic, early Spanish (Romance) and Farsi. Soldier's new album titled "Zajal" features eleven tracks that certainly brings a worldly feel to his latest release, as only a master of ancient languages will understand the lyrics of each song. The music is what may have a timeless feel, as the Rumba rhythm of "The Spy" and the waltz of "Without Myself" may get you swinging your hips. Soldier gets one of his original compositions into the mix, as the Latin jazz flair of "The Stars Of Country Music Greet The Spring" feels like the bridge between some of these very early renditions of popular music and today's understanding of worldly music.
