Track 2 - A 3 piano Hip Hop tribute to Hava Nagila, the unmistakably American Jewish signature piece. Track 3 - Taking the Israeli National Anthem into new instrumental dimension as an emotional piano rhapsody. Track 4 - Dan's 3-part harmony treatment of the Star Spangled Banner sung A Cappella by the girls of Ripe.
