"Sabbath in Paradise" is a serious look at New York's Jewish Jazz scene in the 1990s. While the eponymously titled folktale is read, the featured musicians loosely act out the story, thus creating a visual metaphor. This device serves to not only retell the story but modernize it to fit New York City at the end of the 20th century. This storytelling is punctuated with gritty depictions of the City. This artistic cityscape helps to give the film a powerful sense of place. "Sabbath in Paradise" spends much of its time on a cadre of musicians including Marc Ribot, Andy Statman, Anthony Colman and John Zorn. Through interviews, these musicians offer cerebral insights into the scene and their place as American Jews. A large variety of musical incarnations are shown including solo performances, John Zorn's Masada, the Krakauer Trio and even traditional groups. Performances are shown in studios, wedding halls, synagogues, theaters and most notably the famed Knitting Factory. So what does the music sound like in "Sabbath in Paradise?" With a distinctively Jewish flare, most groups play Avant-garde Jazz but the genre is often accompanied by Straight Jazz, Free Jazz, Klezmer and Folk. As is often the case with Avant-garde Jazz, there are times when the music hurts the ears and other moments that achieve angelic glory. If not always compelling, the music is always interesting. The sound quality, video quality and production is excellent. As if to confirm the film's credibility, the score is by Zorn. It's hard not to compare "Sabbath in Paradise" to Claudia Heuermann's other similarly-minded film, "A Bookshelf on Top of the Sky.Read more ›

The movie as "bonus" seems to me as important as the main movie. It's a very interesting idea to lead through the world of Jewish music with this story of tzadik. Nevertheless: I was surprised, that the protagonists, who are opinion leaders in Jewish Music, could not say fluently, what Jewish Music is, or even what they think what Jewish Music is to them... I had the impression, that they are joking about this notion, which ahs somethin do to with the even more important question, what "Jewish" ist. It seems to me, that the "construct"Jewish Music does not even convince these opinion leaders. And how about alle the others, who want to know, how Jewishness can be defined besides religion, Zionism (or Israel), or East Europe nostalgy. (Excuse my English, I am a German.)
