Friday After Noon: Omer Avital | QANTAR

Created in Brooklyn, New York, with a new quintet bearing a great deal of love, friendship, and a strong sense of serving the music


With QANTAR, OMER AVITAL knew he had found his dream quintet. The improvisations created around his compositions jelled in such a way that it was uncanny, as if the musicians were traveling along the same tightrope, aloft and daring, with an incredible solidarity held together by a bond that went far beyond performing the notes and letting go in the solos. Since 2016 through rehearsals and gigs, the members of this quintet were playing his compositions better than ever and the performances were emerging deeper, richer, fuller, not only with the new works that they developed together in rehearsals, but also the older pieces from Omer’s back catalog of over 100  compositions.


“It took me a little while to understand why this was crazilly happening with the group,” Omer says, “but then it hit me. Bed-Stuy Brooklyn/NYC , Israel, Tel Aviv, eating dinners and drinking Turkish coffee around my kitchen table! We share so much in common, just hanging as friends, and musicians, that the love just penetrates the performances. I feel so blessed with these guys.”


Indeed, the connections go back further than 2016. Classically trained, Avital jump-started the playing and teaching of jazz at Thelma Yellin, Israel’s leading high school for the arts when he grew restless and wanted to explore be-bop and improvisation instead of Bach, Shostakovich and Braun. All the members of Omer’s new band are Thelma Yellen alumnae. They  grew up listening to some of Avital’s compositions, playing a few at pick-up gigs around Tel Aviv in their respective high-school jazz bands. This shared history, even though years apart, imbued this quintet with the key to Avital’s music: his ability to bring the various rhythmic and harmonic vocabularies underpinning 20th and 21st century hardcore jazz expression and flow those with a polyphonic attitude and musical multilingualism.

 

When you dig into it, the bonds between Omer and the others, run not only deep, but entwined. As Omer explains: “I grew up on the same street as Ofri (Nehemya / drums) in Givataim, Isreal. When I was a teenager, I played a bunch of times with his father, who is also a drummer. When Ofri was at Thelma Yellen, I heard that kind of talk you hear when someone is young and very good. And he was. Since High School, he’s played with both Avishai Cohens, Aaron Goldberg, Eli Degibri. I knew Asaf (Yuria / tenor and soprano sax) since he was at Thelma Yellen as well. He’s recently graduated from The New School and has played with Freddie Redd, Kirk Lightsey and Jimmy Cobb. Asaf’s much in demand around town, which is understandable. The first time he was free to sit in when I needed a sub, he was amazing. Now we have him. Our youngest guy, Alexander (Levin / tenor sax),  arrived to NYC at 20 just to join the quintet!  I first heard Alexander in Tel Aviv when he was still in the  Army.  And I sponsored him to get him over to the US, his playing is that good. I don’t know how I convinced the Israeli Army to let him go, but they did. Finally, I met Eden (Ladin / piano and keys) about 8 years ago. I’ve been following him with his trio and sitting in with Myron Walden, Wallace Rooney, Melissa Aldana. As the group was jelling, I knew what we needed to pull together Qantar was Eden.”


“Qantar we thought was our private little tag. It was first to be the album title and now our band name,” Omer continues. “Kind of a mash-up of the word “Quintet” and the arabic/eastern sounds and vibes we love. Then, this is crazy, we found out it’s a unit of measure  – both a weight and a force. Which makes it perfect for us. A forceful unit that sounds good, feels good and carries some weight.”

Moshe Lahav – The Big Tish

Moshe Lahav has created a uniquely Israeli phenomenon called Big Tish.



This refreshing show of Israeli songs adds a socially-dynamic aspect to the performances that has become a total cultural phenomenon…


the audience actively participates and builds the character of the show together with Lahav.

At times dramatic and stormy, at times lighthearted and flowing– thousands of Israelis have already been captured by the magic of the songs, performances, elation, and the sense of togetherness, such that they return again and again.

The show has no permanent structure or set of songs; instead, Lahav concocts a show based on his understanding the emerging mood each night.


To order tickets: Rachel 052-5999244

Jazz @ The Submarine: Nuphar Fey Trio

The new music from Israeli musician Nuphar Fey is a multi-layered, energetically fluent experience, moving thoughtfully between charged groove and spiritual depths.


Like water, the music presents outbursts and changing colors, moods and intensity of flow.
Genre-wise crossover in her creative path, Fey creates her own musical land to experiment in, clashing between contemporary instrumental jazz, cinematic inspiration and daring alternative-classical.
Creating together with her trio – Yogev Gabay on drums and Daniel Ashkenazy on double bass, the three present an impressively tight unit, expanding the borders between tightly composed pieces and masterfully improvised music.


The debut Album for this project – recorded by the trio and guesting cellist & singer Telalit and percussion master Rony Iwryn – is due to be released during 2018. An E.P from 2017 is currently available online.


Nuphar Fey – piano ; Daniel Ashkenazy – bass ; Yogev Gabay – drums
