Direct From Israel: Jazz Central
In recent decades Israel has emerged as a source of some of the world’s great young jazz musicians. In this exciting afternoon event, we welcome Shai Jaschek (guitar), Rosa Lea Salamon (bass/vocals), and Ben Freidkin (drums), a trio of Israel’s top players from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, for an hour of hot virtuoso jazz. You heard them here first!
The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance is known for identifying talent at every age level and helping realize its potential. The blend of cultures and diverse backgrounds of its faculty and students results in an atmosphere where Middle-Eastern music, European classical music, jazz and baroque are all taught under one roof. www.jamd.ac.il
