      Pkwy. Contact Shea schechter at 917-379-6550 or Pdmbls@...

      The third CD from the trio Rashanim is titled appropriately
      enough "Shalosh." Founder and bandleader Jon Madof builds on his
      earlier success in jazzing up a traditional Jewish sound and totally
      rocking out, true to the band name. This all-instrumental album
      contains an innovative rendition of Carlebach's Cracow Niggun, along
      with some great original material, exploring exotic rhythms backing
      Madof's excellent guitar, from the gentle "Jerusalem" to the hard
      rock "Ein Gedi" and "Jacob and Esau." Check out Rashanim in concert
      on Nov 30, and see http://jonmadof.com

      Have a great Shabbos!
