I'm an Israeli born guitar player and composer, playing the guitar since the age of 12. Mostly self taught, my training focused mainly on jazz tradition and improvisation. In my playing style I try to express my perception of jazz harmony and rhythms through the guitar. I try to bring out the natural acoustic sound of the guitar.
My compositions explore different rhythms and feels as a platform for a group improvisation. The harmonies I use are a mix between jazz harmony and the Israeli music I grew up listening to.
Umami Quartet My album - A First Taste was released in 2010 to critical acclaim. This album was recorded with a group called Umami. The music in this album is all originals written by me and co-member Noam Elron , who also plays the double bass. I had the pleasure of playing with the great drummer Noam Israeli and tenor saxophonist Arnan Raz.
