World premiere and album launch 29/11

The saxophonist Yakir Sasson (a quarter to Africa, the apples, Esther Rada, Ariel Zilber, Yehudit Ravitz and others) connects brilliantly and nostalgically between his two loves – songs of beautiful Israel and jazz. The first performance of the project will combine original jazz arrangements with Israeli classics such as “Urban Evening” and “Merav Ahava” for original songs written by Sasson inspired by the wonderful melodies of Hebrew songs.
