Yaacov Mayman Yaacov Mayman

Originally born in Moscow and hailing from Israel, for the past 9 years Yaacov Mayman has been contributing his unique musical voice to the vibrant New York Jazz scene, equally earning high praise, as from his peers and musical critics, as from his multi-faceted audience. He has recently released his highly acclaimed debut album “Watercolors” that features some of the most prominent and re-known Jazz musicians today, such as trumpeter Alex Sipiagin and bassist Boris Kozlov. Yaacov has been indulging audiences nationally and internationally in his fascinating performances with powerful, warm sound, dazzling virtuosity, daring interaction and outstanding musicality, accompanied by an impeccable lineup of hard-swinging and powerfully driving rhythm sections.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
