about

L’Oud and the Abstract Truth, a double-disc of ecstatic middle eastern roots music, pairs the poetry of James Stone Goodman with the deep arabic grooves of the Epichorus, creating a form of poetry-in-music at once ancient and new. Over the course of twenty four tracks, recorded live across New York City, with a cornucopia of master-musicians bearing old and unexpected instruments, L’Oud and the Abstract Truth will dazzle and delight.

L’Oud and the Abstract Truth, is the product of a multi-year effort by Rabbi James Stone Goodman and the Epichorus, to record a traditional music-video for every portion of the Torah - called “The Maqam Project.” A maqam is an arabic musical form, similar to a mode, that is played as a kind of structure over which one improvises. In many middle eastern Jewish traditions, there is a maqam associated with every Torah portion. James Stone Goodman has been writing poetry to this form since 2009; approached by his student, Rabbi Zachary Fredman, bandleader of the Epichorus, the two found a way for poetry and music to meet.
