Sounds like blues. (Very similar to Karlebach style).
Reb Michel was definitely influenced by Reb Shlomo Zt"L. I have a private recording of him singing a number of Carelbach tunes. There's also an interesting musical parallel between Reb Michel's "Tka B'Shofar" and Reb Shlomo's "Biglal Avos." I've been to a number of Twerski simchos where we switch from one niggun to the next, back & forth. Loads of fun!There are some Carlebachers [who now live in Israel] who were living in Denver & used to bring Reb Shlomo there for a yearly concert, where he forged a connection with Rebbe Mottel Twerski, Reb Michel's nephew & a composer of wonderful niggunim in his own right.Reb Michel's own Niggunim are very special and unique. His first recording, issued in the mid-1960s, was a milestone. His style, although it bears some Carlebach influence, is very much his own, and has definitely influenced his nephew's compositions as well. Thanks for posting this, ASJ!
In case you haven't noticed, ASJ, I've linked to this post on my blog! :))
Reb Michel's compositions are more classical and less folksy than Reb Shlomo's. For a man who had zero musical education, he has a remarkable grasp of tone and harmony.
I'm a member of the family so let me tell you somthing Shlomo Carlbach made biglal ovas after he heard my zeida's tkah beshofar and later he told my grandfather that he took it from tkah beshioafr without meaning to but that it's definetly my zeidas nigun
any 1 has the niggun ez chayim from him? please please send it to me... thank you in advance firstname.lastname@example.org
The niggun T'ka and Biglal are not really alike, except for the ends: V'sovi Geulah and V'kabitzeinu
