Recordings by the Rothschilds:  in Memory of Isaac Meyers


 

These songs were written and performed between September 2004 and June 2006 by Isaac Meyers in his band, The Rothschilds.  He went by the moniker Professor Tam Tam.  He collaborated with Zvi Halpern, who he nicknamed M.C. Zed.  Isaac had an amazing sense of melody, and almost all these tunes were written entirely by him.  He also played the ukelele sometimes. 

He will be deeply missed.  Baruch Dayan Ha'emet.
