Throughout his nearly 40-year career, Israeli singer/songwriter David Broza has sought to transcend cultural borders through his music. His mission has never been clearer than on East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem, a collection of newly composed and cover tunes linked by a spirit of unity. Coproduced by Steve Earle (who duets with Broza on his tune “Jerusalem”), the album was recorded at an East Jerusalem studio over an eight-day stretch and features both Israeli and Palestinian players. Broza chooses his material wisely, pairing up a simmering take of Timmy Thomas’ “Why Can’t We Live Together” with a crisp folk-rock reading on Cat Stevens’ “Where Can the Children Play” and a choir-centered version of Nick Lowe’s “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding.” Especially intriguing are the Middle Eastern shadings on a version of Pink Floyd’s “Mother.” Among the originals, “The Lion’s Den” stands out for its Bible-rooted lyrics (written by Israeli-American scientist Judea Pearl), while the title track (a collaboration with Wyclef Jean) adds a dash of Jamaican rhythm to the proceedings.
