Alon Nechushtan

" A talent to watch, with a surfeit of ideas, an unbridled spirit and bold, two-fisted sense of Architecture" - (Down Beat magazine 2011)- Alon Nechushtan's music adventures has brought him to far corners such as the Yokohama Festival Japan with his contemporary compositions, The Sao-Paolo Brazil Jewish Music Festival with his Quintet Talat, Toronto and Montereal's Rex Hotel with his Jazz Trio and The Tel Aviv New Music Biannale with his Compositions for Large Ensemble. Resident of New York City, Alon has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Central Park Summer Stage, The Blue Note Jazz Club and Joe's Pub frequently with his projects as a band leader of various groups or as an in demand sideman. All About Jazz magazine called him a fantastic pianist-composer with abundant chemistry and boundless eclectisism.

Alon Nechushtan: Venture Bound

Read "Venture Bound" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Dopo il suo interessante Ritual Fire, del 2013, il pianista israeliano Alon Nechushtan presenta adesso questo nuovo lavoro, in realtà registrato nell'aprile del 2012 e sostanzialmente più convenzionale, ancorché venato da elementi che gli donano una personalità propria.

8th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival Takes Place June 14 & 21 In The Urban Meadow

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill... The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New ...

Alon Nechushtan: Ritual Fire

Read "Ritual Fire" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Nato in Israele nel 1974 e dal 2003 negli USA, il pianista Alon Nechushtan vanta tra i propri mentori anche Paul Bley e Bob Brookmeyer, i quali evidentemente gli hanno trasmesso quelle tracce del magistero di Jimmy Giuffre che caratterizzano questo eccellente lavoro d'improvvisazione--idealmente ispirato alla creatività pittorica istantanea di Jackson Pollock--e che vengono a più ...

Alon Nechushtan: Dark Forces

Read "Dark Forces" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky
