Ayelet Rose Gottlieb "Mayim Rabim / Great Waters"
Rolling Stones calls Ayelet Rose Gottlieb an "Israeli jazz seductress." In this concert, she performs Mayim Rabim, the captivating song cycle she recorded for the Radical Jewish Culture series on John Zron's Tzadik label. In this piece based on erotic love poetry drawn from the scriptural texts of the "Song of Solomon" or "Song of Songs," she expands on the sensuous thrust of her lyrics about the struggles of a woman in love with a multimedia experience combining movement and a rich tapestry of projected video imagery.
