Notes from the Underground
(From back cover) From the window of the subway as it passes over the Manhattan Bridge into Brooklyn, one has a breathtaking view of the New York skyline. The absence of the World Trade Center evokes within me, as a Jewish American, feelings of sorrow & despair, but also resolve & faith. The result of such emotions are is what appears on this album. It is my hope that in these 'notes from the underground', you find a bit of inspiration. - EK * * * * * A portion of proceeds goes to the Armed Forces Family Scholarship & Assistance fund (AFFSAF), which provides scholarships for the children of fallen service personnel. * * * * * Eric Komar is among the freshest voices in Jewish Contemporary music.
