By Tim Brough VINE VOICE on April 15, 2007
Format: Audio CD
David Broza first came to my attention several years ago via his touring with Sting. I kept hearing raves about this singer that I had never heard before, and eventually found a copy of Broza's "Time Of Trains." I was mesmerized by this clearly talented man, who could pick a guitar like nobody's business and had such a beautifully husky voice. There were a few songs on that CD that have stayed with me, especially the title track, "Somebody Make Me Laugh" and "Blood For Blood."

Sadly, that CD did not bring about the American success it was aiming for. Around the world, however, Broza's mix of Hebrew, Spanish and English lyrics with a mix of musical styles has won him a steady audience for almost 30 years. "Painted Postcards" is his latest attempt at finding new listeners in America, combining songs from his albums "Second Street," "Time of Trains" "David Broza" and "Stone Doors." While each of these albums is a fine recording in its own light, they have often been released in America on smaller or labels now gone defunct.

Broza picked some of his favorite songs from both his English and Hebrew catalogs for this 2002 release on Rounder. While Broza writes most of the music himself, he searches for poets and lyricists the world over to either match his spirited music or to translate into Hebrew. If you're a fan of the Gypsy Kings, "It Is You" will warm your cold feet.

As a guitarist and a singer, David Broza is a joy to hear. One of the things I love most about his music is his knack for setting poetry to music. Anyone tempted to fall asleep in literature class should hear what he does with the words of Percy Bysshe Shelley, or the more contemporary poet Alberto Rios.

"Painted Postcards" won't contain anything new for longtime Broza fans, but it's nice to have this collection as many of his previous CDs are, sadly, now out of print.

This was Broza's first bilingual CD (Hebrew and English). An Israeli native, Broza lived in Spain from the age of 12 through 24. Later, he lived in the USA for a time. All these influences combine in some of the most beautiful music I've heard.

Highly recommended!

I purchased this as the album I really wanted was no longer available, and many of the songs were on this cd. I have always enjoyed Broza's voice and energy, but hadn't listened to as much of his music as I would like. Buying this changed that. Between his Spanish style flaminco guitar work and his raspy, husky, forceful voice, I have had this album in heavy rotation since puchasing it. It's not a perfect album, a number of the songs have very similar feels and sounds, but it is quite enjoyable.

Having never heard David Broza before, I am totally enthralled with this CD. The mix of hebrew and spainish influence creates an exotic combination. I think the guitar work is exceptional.

Disappointing. We were hoping for some new material from this fine artist. All he's done is signed on to a new label and re-issued songs, mostly off Stone Doors and the self titled David Broza, which we already have. Better to buy those two CDs because there are several great songs that couldn't be crammed on to one "best of" CD.
