This time in our show we are hosting a great saxophone player Albert Piamenta – one of the pioneers of jazz in Israel.
Albert Piamenta, arranger and woodwind instrument player, one of the pillars of Israeli jazz. He became famous from the 1960s as a player & leader of various ensembles together with Aharale Kaminsky and Danny Gottfried. Musically arranged, directed and wrote songs for countless top singers, including Hava Alberstein and Shlomo Artzi. In his jazz playing he always sought after the Mediterranean sound and use the Arabic scales (Makamath) with the quarter notes.
Together with Eran Zilberberg, an excellent bass player we'll perform familiar jazz pieces and an original piece by Piamenta.
