ADRIENNE COOPER, April 16, 2008

Adrienne Cooper came into the studio today to record. Adrienne Cooper is one of the most influential performers of Yiddish vocal music today. She also has the only Yiddish recording ever nominated for a Grammy. The thing that I love about the Yiddish language is that even though it has been dismissed and repeatedly declared a "dead language", it has it continued to resurface and make a comeback everytime...which I think is an incredible symbol for the plight of the Jewish religion, and is so indicative of the history of Judism- though it is dismissed, and almost even destroyed, it survives.
