“Shaul is extremely talented and has tremendous instinctive love for every aspect of jazz. His tenor playing is authentic and rooted. He is extremely imaginative and has the ability to truly improvise at the highest level and most sophisticated level in the jazz idiom. At the same time, Shaul has the utmost respect respect for the tradition in jazz and it is this sincerity that makes his playing so compelling.” --Walt Weiskopf, Saxophonist

“Shauli Einav’s playful sense of harmonic adventure lends excitement to his very colorful compositions.His attention to tone is pointed, and one feels he is crafting each note’s sound as much as the pieces themselves. Shauli’s classical technique then serves as a departure point to express the moods of each melodic idea he reaches for.” -- Tamir Hendelman, Pianist
