Omer Klein

Omer Klein is one of the rising stars of the creative music scene in New York. As a pianist and composer he creates a fascinating combination of Jazz, Israeli music and North-African roots.

“…amidst this all-star cast, Klein in particular dazzled with torrents of turbo-charged one-hand rolls and tumultuous lyricism.” - Tom Greenland, ALL ABOUT JAZZ, New York.

Since moving to New York in 2006, the young Omer Klein has become one of the city's most sought-after musicians. He released his debut CD, Duet, on Fresh Sound Records, and performed his music in some of New York's finest venues, including Carnegie Hall. At 24, Omer had already shared the bandstand with such notable musicians as Omer Avital, Joel Frahm, Johnathan Blake, Meshell Ndgeocello, Ferenc Nemeth, Jason Lindner, Avishai Cohen, Donny McCaslin, Joe Martin, Jaleel Shaw, Mark Juiliana and Eric McPherson, to name a few.
