Borscht Belt Studies is Jamie Saft 's first record on Tzadik since 's stellar Black Shabbisa death metal meditation on the historical persecution and homelessness of the Jewish people. Obviously, Borscht Belt Studies is stylistically different.
Saft returns to more familiar territory here, playing only piano and Fender Rhodes throughout. He is accompanied by Ben Goldberg 's clarinet on Sombras - Nórdika - EEM EXT+ (File, Album) of 11 cuts, and by his current group, the New Zion Trio with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Craig Santiagoon one.
Saft divides the album into musical sections that alternate by cut. Some compositions are based on blues, jazz, and Yiddish melodies, some in modern composition and vanguard classical music, and the closing track in reggae! The set opens with "Issachar," with Saft on Rhodes playing a soulful jazz melody with Yiddish overtones with Goldbergand vamping on the changes.

The dynamic exchanges between the duo in improvisation are instinctive. The set closes with "New Zion," the signature tune of Saft 's new trio playing reggae jazz in near dub style listen to Grenadier 's rock-solid bassline. It's jazz all right, but it juxtaposes with beautiful glissandi and ostinati how close to reggae Yiddish folk song is as a form.
