Dan Nadel's debut album, Brooklyn Prayer, is a rich, introspective recording that explores the subtler cultures of New York's most diverse borough. Featuring infectious melodies, haunting vocals and lush acoustic arrangments, Nadel, the Israeli-born guitarist, delivers a series of exhilarating Latin pieces interspersed with other compositions bearing traces of Middle Eastern, flamenco and North American influences.
Nadel favors Spanish and steel string guitars on this recording, focusing on colors and sounds, and displaying a strong and expressive guitar voice. Combining classical finesse and all-out grit on a very wide improvisational canvas, Nadel's guitar almost sounds like a human voice. Busy on the New York music scene, many know Nadel's excellent electric and acoustic guitar playing. He performs regularly at venues such as Birdland, S.O.B's, Cafe Wha?, Makor, The Bitter End and The Cutting Room. This album, the culmination of his seven years in New York, provides listeners with an emotional retreat and leaves them pleading for more.
A concert celebrating the release has been scheduled for 8pm Monday, February 28, 2005, at Makor, NYC. In addition to Nadel's guitar and compositions, this show will include all the musicians featured on the album: Bassist Lonnie Plaxico, Percussionist Gilad and vocalist Michal Cohen.
