Omer Klein 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.

Omer grew up in Netanya, Israel, where he started to play and compose at the age of 7. After completing his studies at the prestigous Thelma Yellin high school of the arts, he was acknowledged by the Israeli ministry of culture as an “Outstanding Musician”. In 2003 Omer co-founded Mura, a unique group composing and performing music to texts by Israeli poets. Mura's music was received exceptionally well by audiences and critics. TIMEOUT TEL AVIV wrote: “One of the best groups in town, and without a doubt the most profound one.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
