Israeli pianist Yaron Herman s musical wonderland is an uninhibited, fresh
novelty world that flows with an inexhaustible energy!
Israeli pianist Yaron Herman ranks among the most popular
pianists of his generation. In France, his adopted country, he
is already a star, having received the Victoires du Jazz as
best new instrumentalist.
Follow the white Rabbit is the zenith of an already
impressive career. The title is a reference to Lewis Carroll s
Alice In Wonderland, in which a white rabbit lures Alice
into a colorful and dramatic wonderland.
Herman s music is beyond genre borders. With great thirst
for adventure he blurs the lines between jazz, pop, and
classical, luring listeners into a realm full of innovation, joy
of playing, and seemingly inexhaustible energy.
This trio, with Chris Tordini on bass and Tommy Crane on
drums, is carried by the collective inspiration and the magic
of the moment.
Hardly anyone else is capable of merging the entire jazz
tradition into his soli in such concentrated form and rapid
succession ... Yaron Herman is clearly a man to be reckoned
with. --Süddeutsche Zeitung
This album is almost a masterclass in the contemporary trio. --The Guardian
