Editorial Reviews

"Very much a keeper. This is engaging, richly enjoyable, and undated music." – All About Jazz

"An ironclad band … its music was rugged swing and harmony and texture and sweeping, singable tunes, acoustic jazz full of a reason for being." – New York Times

"Knotty and fierce one moment, breezy and genial the next, Avital’s tunes offer vista after vista." – Down Beat

The long-awaited new recording from internationally acclaimed bassist Omer Avital features his long-standing all-star quintet and a raft of new compositions! Omer Avital is one of the few contemporary jazz stars to receive unanimous acclaim from critics and listeners. He has received stellar press in Down Beat, New York Times, JazzTimes, and Jazziz, and is increasingly counted among the legendary jazz giants. Avital’s dynamic bass style is rooted deeply in jazz, with influences from Middle Eastern and African music. His compositions are episodic and have dramatic sweep, sounding like the telling of an epic tale. All the members of this quintet are jazz stars in their own right, having played with Avital since before they were known. This is one of the few highly evolved all-star groups in jazz today, and it shows!
