Editorial Reviews

Songs of the Jewish-American Jet Set is a proud collection of the
dizzying catalog of Tikva Records, the flagship independent Jewish
record label of 20th century America.
Founded in 1947, Tikva s catalog was wide-ranging everything
from Israeli folk songs to Jewish-American swing, from klezmer pop
to cantorial singing, from Catskills comedy to key political speeches
of Jewish leaders and it became something of a Jewish Motown,
home to the Jewish music world s biggest names. Despite the fact
that Tikva s releases were a direct reflection of the major social
themes and cultural shifts of Jewish America in the 50s and 60s,
its contributions to American popular music, and Jewish musical and
cultural history, have been largely forgotten.

I gave a copy of this collection as a gift to my doctor, who had seen a few of the performers when he was a child. He loved it. It provides an interesting insight into the emerging Jewish-American culture of the time.

This is a great collections of songs with an eclectic variety of sounds. We visited the Jewish Album Art exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco a few years ago and had to buy this when we saw it because it was such a great reminder of the fun exhibit. Mazel tov!
