TZADIK Blurb     

How many times do you get the chance to hear the initial meeting of a legendary band? This CD is just that. A diamond in the rough. The absolutely first time the original quartet Masada ever played the music that has made them one of the premier bands of modern Jewish music. It’s all here—the fireworks, the telepathic communication—the Masada magic. Experience the same excitement the musicians felt when they realized the possibilities this very special September evening at the old Knitting Factory back in 1993. A little loose, a little wild—but completely compelling. It all started this night.
