Celebrating Bar Mitzvah to the album “Amen”.
“Amen” was recorded in 2006 as a fun project, friends gathering together to make some music without expecting anything. Shortly after it was released, the album became the most selling jazz album in Israel ever.
We’re celebrating 13 years, which makes a Jewish boy into a man, since it was released, with a phenomenal quartet that hasn’t met for years –
Omri Mor on piano, Gilad Abro on bass, Daniel Dor on drums and Zamir on sax. For the first time ever Zamir and his friends will play the entire album from beginning to ending.
A huge treat is having top Israeli musician and composer Yoni Rechter, who’s one of Zamir’s all time musical heroes, as a special guest.
“Amen” broke all boundaries of listening habits and made a new huge audience for jazz, people that never liked jazz became fans. On the other hand, it brought jewish music into jazz in a way that was never done before.
The result was an astounding instrumental jazz album that was sold out in CD stores all over, and actually made Zamir go back to Israel, where he developed a prestigious career, collaborating with top musicians and creating his own style within.
