Len Susan DanBy BERNIE BELLAN
In the middle of singing his very funny - and touching song, "I was born to be a Yid", Len Udow looked at me videoing his performance, stopped and said: "Oh no, Bernie's going to put this on Youtube again."


What Len was referring to was a video I posted two years ago to our website showing him debuting that song at what was billed as the "Cantors' Concert", and which featured six different cantors (or former cantors) one magical evening.
So, yes, I posted a video again - this time featuring a collage of songs from the Nov. 28 concert in which Len launched his latest CD, "Modeh Ani" or "Look for a Morning". This time the only other cantor to appear with Len was Tracy Kasner Greaves, of Etz Chayim, who joined Len on stage a number of times. Tracy also appears with Len on the CD, as do a number of other notable artists, including: Judith Lander (vocals); Dan Donahue (vocals and various instruments):; Shayla Fink (accordion); Susan Israel (violin); Ira Udow (vocals); Patrick Godfrey (piano, electric organ); Bob Lafond (drums); and the members of the Friday Night Live Band (Janet Pelletier-Goetze, David Pelletier, and John Gosselin).
You can read more about how this CD came into being at http://jewishpostandnews.ca/local/2055-len-udow-to-launch-new-cd-nov-28.
In the meantime, you can watch snippets of Len -and some of the people who helped him make the CD, performing at Temple Shalom Nov. 28, at http://jewishpostandnews.ca/videos/191-len-udow-concert-launching-latest-cd.
