Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

David Chevan is the first-born son of a family of first-generation Jewish immigrants from Poland and Russia. He was musically active from an early age and grew up in a Conservative-Egalitarian Jewish synagogue where he led services from the age of 10. Although much of his performing method on the double-bass has been self taught, Chevan credits the master bassist, Lisle Atkinson with showing him the pathway to self-education. As a composer Chevan has primarily focused on works for improvisors. He has written works for a wide range of artists and ensembles, including several collaborations with dance and film. He is a critically acclaimed musician whose work has been compared favorably with Charles Mingus and Rahsaan Roland Kirk. In addition to performing regularly in a duo with pianist Warren Byrd and leading their group, The Afro-Semitic Experience, Chevan has had the opportunity to perform and record with a wide range of creative musical artists, including Ali Ryerson, Joe Beck, Jaki Byard, Harold Danko, Ellery Eskelin, Giacomo Gates, Frank London, Andrea Parkins, and Cookie Segelstein. He is an Associate Professor of Music at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven. He holds a Ph.D in Music History from C.U.N.Y. and has published numerous articles on the history of early jazz, developed and taught courses on Jewish and African-American musical traditions and is currently studying the music of bassist Milt Hinton as well as a comprehensive study of Jazz Fake Books.

The Afro-Semitic Experience is an ensemble dedicated to preserving, promoting and expanding the rich cultural and musical heritage of the Jewish and African diaspora. Imagine a band that understands and can present interpretations of music from the rich traditions of Gospel, Klezmer, Yoruban drumming, Nigunim, Synagogue chant, Spirituals, Funk, and Swing and you have the Afro-Semitic Experience. A group that is as comfortable playing a freylakh as they are swinging a blues, that knows how to play either a bulgar or some funk. Multi-cultural soul.

"the Afro-Semitic Experience evokes the sound of cultural shift, of a melting pot, of spirituality and devotion and ceremony, of partying and praying and jamming. . . .A danceable, trance-causing flurry of notes with godly underpinnings. Underneath all the oomph you feel the warmth, wealth fury and pain of whole nations, repressed cultures, challenged beliefs. This band is the sound of the past, the present and the great beyond all at once." Christopher Arnott, The New Haven Advocate

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Fusion! January 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
David Chevan and the Afro-Semetic Experience is doing what few artists can do well: fuse Jewish sacred music with a popular idiom. Very often, I feel that other people's attempts at doing this fall short of both the Jewish and the popular, but you can hear from this recording that Chevan and his group are deeply spiritual, and they preserve the spirit of Yossele Rosenblatt on this recording in a new and refreshing way. His virtuoso bass along with Warren Byrd on the keys (SUCH a natural, this man!), Stacy Keach on Dobro (what SOUL!), and the rest of the ensemble make you long for the original recordings of Rosenblatt. I never thought that Jazz was an appropriate genre to be introduced into Jewish spirituality... Chevan has changed my mind forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jews for Jazz August 29, 2006
By I. Levy
Format:Audio CD
There may be nothing new under the sun, but there are more things under heaven and earth than any of us have dreamt of. And here's one of them, a brand new interpretation of historic Jewish prayer music, jazzed up in the best sense of that word. Chevan, Byrd, and the gang are master musicians and adept at the delicate welding operation required to fuse these two musical traditions into sound that is a rare pleasure to listen to. Meditative, uplifting, surprising, and never ordinary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice read March 28, 2014
By Tamah
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice read, not too in-depth and not too simple. It is thought provoking and great for reflecting on these special Jewish festivals. I recommend it for anyone's library who is interested in extending his or her knowledge base and perspectives on the concepts of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
