about

This incredibly dynamic and sonorous recording captures the full energy and sound of Pittsburgh's own Jewish funk band in a live performance to a packed house at Club Cafe!

It starts with a hard-driving deep-grooving re-imagining of Shlomo Carlebach's "Mizmor Shir," continues with tight band hits and electrifying solos over original compositions both new and reprised from their debut album "Jewish Soul Stew," and concludes with a funky crescendo of Lazer Lloyd, Billy Preston and Duke Ellington covers. Hear why fans have been comparing Chillent's live performances to "klezmer Phish" and "Maceo Parker at a bar mitzvah."

Track Name: Universe in Miniature
We are the universe in miniature,
For within you I see the mirror image of me.
We are the universe in miniature,
For within me I feel the longings of you.

Been cast away,
It goes on and on and continues today.
Where have we gone astray?
We wander without direction and we can't see the light of day.

Look past the outside and expand your mind,
We can break beyond the confines of space and time.
We are pieces of a puzzle and we've come undone,
Only our bodies divide us but our souls are one.
Our hearts break, the earth shakes, but we must cry out,
If we sit in compliance we will linger in doubt.
Each moment is time that we cannot waste,
Everything stands ready but we must make haste!

We are the universe in miniature,
For within you I see the mirror image of me.
We are the universe in miniature,
For within me I feel the longings of you.

We are the microcosm of the world at large,
A good deed, thought, or word can tip the scales for us all.
Change must mean rejection of the status quo,
And not a crass resignation to our whims as we go.
You're not quite as small as you think you are,
Don't elect someone else to do your part of the job.
We all steer the same boat to our collective destination,
So don't throw down your paddle based on your own estimation.

We are the universe in miniature,
For within you I see the mirror image of me.
We are the universe in miniature,
For within me I feel the longings of you.
Track Name: Catch Me If I Fall
Locked down in this prison,
I'm stuck and losing vision.
Time feels non-existent,
And I continue to feel distant.
But you fill my heart with joy,
As I cry away my lonely nights.
And if I manage to wake up, you'll be the first that I call.
And as I notice the ledge, please catch me if I fall.

Ooooh, I'm so tired,
And it's hard to keep my head up.
I hold the key to my release,
But I can't be arrested for disturbing the peace.
Change is not my problem,
It's my habit to be close minded.
And if I manage to wake up, you'll be the first that I call.
And as I notice the ledge, please catch me if I fall.

Something's holding me back,
But I'm bound for the right track.
I've opened up a doorway,
And I'm walking through the corridor.
I've been so uptight,
While you tried to steer me right.
And if I manage to wake up, you'll be the first that I call.
And as I notice the ledge, please catch me if I fall.
Track Name: Breakin' Through
I can see it comin' just beyond the wall
That's crumbling down: Signs of the world becoming
A place where we can all get down together, together
Like was planned from the start we all play our part
In the healing (from floor to ceiling)
Of our fractured world ‘til we're whole again

But sometimes it seems that the world is on the edge
A closer look reveals that our time is but a wedge
Between the old and the new -- we're breakin' through

We all were there: When they ate from the fruit
We all splintered at the root to become just one of many
Dazed and confused, not knowing what to do
But not forever. And the storms we've weathered
Will lift us up and the world won't be corrupt
And we'll dance together, in any kind of weather
‘Cause at that point we'll all be whole again

But sometimes it seems that the world is on the edge
A closer look reveals that our time is but a wedge
Between the old and the new -- we're breakin' through
Track Name: Emes (Mendel's Blues)
A good man falls seven times
And bad men don’t always pay for their crimes
Do what you do to be true just because it’s true

A kind word can turn the page
And harsh words will just be repaid
You might have something to prove but how will it conclude?

A good day can have pain
And hard days can drive you insane
Sometimes it’s hard to see through so follow the groove

Oseh ha’emes mipnei she'hi emes v’sof hatovah lavo bichlal
Track Name: Not Too Late
Come into the city, destination’s on the right
People getting ready, lining up tonight
Bringin’ a message or two

Fought a little, thought a little, made a mistake
Lookin’ for a new way to communicate
The time is long overdue

But it’s not too late, no it’s not too late
Nishto kein farfallen, the future is callin’
And it’s not too late, yeah it’s not too late
Nishto kein farfallen, the future is callin’
Callin’ me back to you…

Missed some opportunities, gimme some more
A little light pushes darkness out the door
We’ll lift the night with a tune

It isn’t all you need but there’s gotta be love
So everything below and the One Above
Can come together soon

It could be a little or it could be a lot
As long as you give it, give it all you got
And don’t stop singin’ your tune

You won’t fall below, you’re connected above
What you want and what you need and who you love
Will come together soon
Track Name: Deeper Than Your Mind
Pick yourself up
Ain't no need to cry

Lift your eyes up
Look past the sky

Turn inside
Deeper than your mind

Then you'll find
A way to spend your time
Track Name: Will It Go Round in Circles
I know a song ain't got no melody
I'm gonna sing it to my friends

I know a dance ain't got no steps
Gonna let the music move me around

I know a story ain't got no moral
Let the bad guy win every once in a while

Will it go round in circles?
Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?
