Erik Berman for the album “The Second” ✦ Saturday 11.05 ✦ Special guest: Shlomi Shaban ✦ Barby
After the success of his debut album, which reached the status of a gold album, in 2009 Eric Berman released “II” which was a direct continuation of his first album.
There were 14 songs that Arik wrote and composed in a musical production by Moshe Levy. The recording was attended by members of Arik’s accompanying ensemble, most of whom still play with him today. The album’s songs were played on the radio stations (“Self-Fulfillment,” “The Taste is Acquired”), and some of them became hits by Galat in concerts – “Amazing Child”, “The Last Cigarette” and “Uriah Returns Home.”
Ten years later, Eric Berman and the band return to “II” and perform the album in a festive performance hosted by Shlomi Shaban for a first and intriguing encounter between the two on stage. It is hard not to think of the texts that are tangent between them, it is interesting to imagine their joint performance. Expect surprises.
