Guitarist Nadav Remez is one of today’s emerging voices on the Jazz scene, and his music is gaining the attention of both fans and music critics worldwide. His melodic abilities on the guitar have been described as “haunting”, and his music as an intriguing combination of modern Jazz, Alternative Rock and Jewish Folk. On his long-awaited debut release, entitled “So Far” (Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records), he brings these different influences to the table and mixes them in a way that was never heard before, backed up by his all-star New York band.
Growing up in Israel, Nadav’s musical education took a critical turn at the Thelma Yellin high school for the arts, known for producing well-known international jazz musicians. There, Nadav was exposed to many varieties of musical traditions, both western and eastern, that allowed him to form his unique musical vision.
Remez is not only an extremely inventive guitarist who plays
with warmth, taste and imagination, but also a composer of
merit whose compositions embrace contemporary jazz,
melded with indie rock and Jewish folk music. ★★★★ -
