Omer Ashano: violin Juan Vidaurre: guitar Solomon Gottfried: double-bass Roy Ben Yosef- drums
Young Brooklyn based, Israeli jazz violinist Omer Ashano released his debut EP of a live show recording in NYC and is available through all major streaming services. Ashano, an up and coming talent in the NYC jazz scene is performing and recording extensively in addition to establishing himself as a film composer and producer in the New York scene. The EP consists of four original pieces and two jazz standards arranged by Ashano, “Tenderly” and “All The Things You Are,” which features three other young and talented musicians: Juan Vidaurre on guitar, Solomon Gottfried on double bass and Roy Ben Yosef on drums. The album’s original tunes were composed during different periods of Ashano’s life, yet are unified by the same element of raw and intuitive emotional expression rather than attempting to depict a concept or idea. Being a folklore music enthusiast, he was always greatly influenced by the sense of simplicity and authenticity found in traditional music of different cultures and that essence is sought after in his playing and composition.
