Eran Vertzberger

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.
