Yuval Ron

Guitarist Yuval Ron performs original tunes which transcend the boundaries of any specific musical genre. Inspired by a crossover of modern Jazz-Rock icons and a host of many other contemporary artists from the Progressive Rock, Fusion, Metal and modern music genres, it is all well blended into an own fresh and distinct musical direction. The music features virtuosic performances of various compelling and colorful compositions, produced on top of a cinematic, orchestral, some say Sci-Fi film-like backgrounds, atmospheric soundscapes and various implanted sound effects drawing the listener into a total, electrifying experience. The players place a constant emphasis on harmonic richness, rhythmical sophistication and an extensive use of synthesizers, laptops and other electronic instruments

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
