Yotam Ishay

Yotam Ishay is an Israeli pianist & composer who performs both Jazz and modern music, a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music with a full scholarship. Yotam grew up in Afula, a small town in Israel. His first experience with music was at the age of 9 when he heard his older sisters playing "Heart & Soul" on the piano. Being already passionate about music, and since he couldn't read music yet, he asked them to write the names of the notes played in Hebrew so he could learn the song. Yotam began formal classical piano lessons just before his tenth birthday, while experimenting with composition from the first years, and listening to CDs of the music of Claude Debussy, who became his deepest influence through the years

Fire And Ice: Two Nordic Contrasts

Read "Fire And Ice: Two Nordic Contrasts" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The twin forces of ice and fire have long existed in Nordic mythology. In the twenty-first century, northern European music has offered stark contrasts too, with a scene as vibrant and compelling as any on earth. Labels such as Hubro, Odin, Rune Grammofon and Jazzland have brought us many artists with a common grounding in jazz ...

Quinsin Nachoff: Pivotal Arc

Read "Pivotal Arc" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann


Canadian saxophonist and composer Quinsin Nachoff's newest outing out on Whirlwind Recordings once again proves what was established long before: that nothing about his approach to jazz is common. As a matter of fact, if his name weren't almost exclusively mentioned in jazz publications, jazz wouldn't necessarily be the first thing that came to mind when ...

The Touch of Your Lips, Part 3: The Essential Touch in Jazz Piano

Read "The Touch of Your Lips, Part 3: The Essential Touch in Jazz Piano" reviewed by Kurt Ellenberger


Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 It would be nice and tidy if the development of tone color as a primary in jazz piano matched its development in the other instruments, but that is not the case. From early on in jazz's history, composers and bandleaders like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Cab ...

Yakir Arbib: My Name Is Yakir

Read "My Name Is Yakir" reviewed by Don Phipps


Clever and entertaining, My Name is Yakir offers a diverse potpourri of jazz standards and original compositions performed by pianist Yakir Arbib. The music contrasts standards from the Dixieland, swing, bebop and hard bop eras with five originals that mix classical idioms with loose jazz structures. Arbib certainly has talent and his technical dexterity permits him ...

Ada Rovatti e il Questionario di Proust

Read "Ada Rovatti e il Questionario di Proust" reviewed by Paolo Peviani


Il tratto principale della mia musica Accessibile ma armonicamente e stilisticamente sofisticata. Così almeno è stata definita in una recensione e penso che mi si addica. La qualità che desidero nei musicisti che suonano con me Mentalità musicale aperta e rispetto. Come musicista, il momento in cui sono ...

Enrico Pieranunzi, André Ceccarelli, Diego Imbert: Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy

Read "Monsieur Claude. A Travel with Claude Debussy" reviewed by Luca Casarotti


È nota la consuetudine di Enrico Pieranunzi con le monografie, segno d'una concezione virtuosa del disco, come esito di una progettualità coerente, e non come mera necessità editoriale: basti pensare ai lavori dedicati a Duke Ellington (Duke's Dream, 2017), a Domenico Scarlatti (Plays Domenico Scarlatti, 2007), a Ennio Morricone (Play Morricone, 2 voll., 2001-2002), a Bill ...

Brian McCarthy: Codex

Read "Codex" reviewed by Doug Collette


Whether saxophonist Brian McCarthy's third full-length studio album, Codex, was specifically intended as such, this comparatively simple, bracing quartet project is a refreshing change of pace from its more involved predecessor, The Better Angels of Our Nature (Truth Revolution, 2017). On the surface at least seemingly far less ambitious, the album begins in a ...

Yelena Eckemoff Quartet: Leaving Everything Behind

Read "Leaving Everything Behind" reviewed by Dave Wayne


With all of the worldwide hue and cry concerning immigration, precious little is said about the lives of immigrants themselves, the sacrifices they've made and the risks they've taken in order to start their lives anew; free of whatever hardships and oppression they endured in their native country. In the news, entire lives are boiled down ...
