Yair Loewenson

Yair Loewenson was born in Haifa, Israel, and has been playing, composing, and teaching music professionally since his late teens. Jazz has always been his main genre, along with late classical and contemporary compositions. His extensive track record on stage includes various ensembles: duets, trios, big-bands, and everything in between. He performs in concerts and festivals in Israel and Europe and plays double bass, electric bass, and guitar. Most recently, he launched his debut trio album Room 13, which he has solely composed and produced.

Bass: I play electric bass since 1990. The bass is the first instrument that I performed with. These days I teach the bass to many students. My favorite bass players are: Jeff Berlin, Steve Swallow and Jaco Pastorius. Jeff Berlin is a very original player that got a unique voice on the instrument. I recommend his CD “Pump It”. Steve Swallow: another great bassist and composer. I dig his solos and compositions and very much recommend his album Home. Jaco Pastorius is the most popular bass player. He's a real revolutionist. I dig his sound and his great freedom and recommend listening to him on Weather Report CDs.
