Tracks by some of the best performers of Jewish music are now available on a compilation album accompanying this year’s Singer’s Warsaw Festival of Jewish Culture in the Polish capital.

Entitled Jewish & Jazz Inspirations, the album is the fifth compilation to be released as part of the festival, which this year will be held Aug. 27-Sept. 4. It will include a series of jazz concerts at the Kwadrat Theater, the Nożyk Synagogue and several other Warsaw venues.

The album features the likes of the Nahorny Trio, Paul Brody and The Klezmatics, in addition to other international jazz stars from Poland and abroad. It delivers a broad musical spectrum from Jewish-inspired jazz to klezmer music.

Jewish & Jazz Inspirations includes tracks by Sefardix, Frank London’s Klezmer Brass Allstars, Savannah and The Stringz, Leszek Ż±dło, Lena Piękniewska, and Kuba Sienkiewicz.

The artistic director of the Singer’s Warsaw Festival of Jewish Culture is actress, singer and theater director Golda Tencer, who also manages Warsaw’s Jewish Theater.

The festival’s jazz concerts, collectively billed as the Singer Jazz Festival, will be held under the artistic direction of Adam Baruch, one of the world’s most esteemed jazz experts and critics.

The annual Singer’s Warsaw Festival of Jewish Culture is one of the most important Jewish culture-themed events in Europe. First held in 2004, the festival is a tribute to Polish-born Jewish American Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, who felt a strong affection for Warsaw and wrote about the city in many of his novels.
