Yaron Elyashiv

For a long time modern jazz has been misrepresented to the public as music for musicians. Noted for his fresh approach to jazz, saxophonist and composer Yaron Elyashiv stays true to tradition as he keeps looking forward into the future.

Originally from Israel, Mr. Elyashiv has already been making a name for himself after only two years in New York, leading his groups at the legendary Minton's Playhouse, Silver Spring Jazz Festival, and a live radio broadcast at the WBGO studios in Newark. Some of the clubs he performed include Saint Nick's Pub, Sweet Rhythm, Fat Cat, Jules Bistro, The Greenwich Village Bistro as well as The CUNY Jazz Festival. Mr. Elyashiv has performed as a leader and a sideman with great musicians such as Ugonna Okegwo, Valery Ponomarev, Esperanza Spalding, Andrei Ryabov, Daniela Shaechter, Ruslan Khain, Tommy James, Bertha Hope, Satoshi Inoue, Kengo Nakamura, Myrna Lake, Dmitri Kolesnik, Janice Freedman, Phil Stewart, Ari Roland, Sacha Perry, Will Terril and Richard Clements.
