Musician

Daniel Ori

Born:

Originally from Kfar Saba, Israel, bassist and composer Daniel Ori's first exposures to music were piano recitals at his grandmother's apartment in Tel-Aviv. Her attempts to teach Daniel traditional piano lessons were disrupted by his interest with contemporary music. At age 14, Daniel took his older brother's electric bass, which was lying around the house into his own hands. The connection with the instrument came immediately and Daniel's musical voyage had begun. His growing interest in Jazz music brought him to Rimon School of Music, where he studied Jazz performance for three years. Daniel has since collaborated with some of Israel's top Jazz prospects and has played at the Red Sea Jazz Festival and Tel Aviv Jazz Festival to name a few

Michael Eaton: Dialogical

Read "Dialogical" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Saxophonist Michael Eaton covers a lot of ground on this CD, using several different configurations of musicians in a program that encompasses angular, funk-laced fusion, airy sax and flute duets, a multi-saxophone workout and minimalism in the Philip Glass style. A key sideman here is guitarist Lionel Loueke whose unique style of playing and ...

Michael Eaton: Dialogical

Read "Dialogical" reviewed by Troy Dostert


A saxophonist and composer with uncommon ambition, Michael Eaton seems to recognize no limits whatsoever on his craft. He's played in virtually every style imaginable: free improvisation, Latin jazz, post-bop, classical, reggae and rock, just to scratch the surface--and he keeps company with a cross-section of today's cutting-edge players, including James Brandon Lewis, Michael Attias and ...

Michael Eaton: Individuation

Read "Individuation" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Individuation, as a concept, can be seen as a parallel to the process of making music. In speaking one's own voice through an instrument and/or through composition, individuals manage to direct their imagination and unconscious into something tangible. Saxophonist Michael Eaton knows a thing or two about this, as demonstrated on his aptly-titled debut.

Tavche Gravche: Our Village

Read "Our Village" reviewed by Budd Kopman


Put Our Village in the player. As the music comes pouring out, you close your eyes and try to envision where you are being transported. This is folk music, and the musical modes imply the Balkans, or somewhere around the Black Sea, as do the odd-beat meters, but there is also a klezmer element mixed with ...

The Elec Tet: Shiny Metal Objects

Read "Shiny Metal Objects" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The Elec Tet started out as a fusion tribute band, but it quickly outgrew that designation. Drummer Ben Scholz originally formed the group as a vehicle to explore the sounds of now-classic '70s fusion outfits, but something else happened along the way: originality eclipsed imitation in The Elec Tet. Now, on the band's debut album, Scholz ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
