THE 3RD JERUSALEM JAZZ FESTIVAL ISRAEL MUSEUM

The 3rd Jerusalem Jazz Festival will host leading international and Israeli musicians in nearly thirty shows that will fill the spectacular Israel Museum galleries with the lively magical sounds of Jazz from November 29-December 1, 2017. In addition, the free-of-charge evening jam sessions at the Yellow Submarine have become a kind of festival in miniature within the Jerusalem Jazz Festival, with musicians and festival guests from Israel and around the world, jamming far into the night.

Under the artistic direction of world renowned trumpeter Avishai Cohen, the Festival offers a wide variety of jazz, from the newest original creations and captivating interpretations of Jazz standards, through unexpected collaborations and surprise pop up performances, to artist talks, workshops, student showcases and culminating with nightly jams at the Yellow Submarine.

There are close to thirty shows that will include the Rosenfeld Quartet as trumpeter Danny Rosenfeld is back with a new and dynamic acoustic quartet. The band will play hits, especially swing, from the golden age of American popular music, while staying faithful to the original melodies.  German cellist Anja Lechner and the French pianist François Couturier's music crosses boundaries, with arrangements of works by G. I. Gurdjieff, Federico Mompou, and AnouarBrahem, as well as works by Couturier himself as they appear in a performance entitled Moderato Cantabile. The intriguing musical encounter between Rafael de Utrera (vocals) and NoaDrezner (guitar) will transport listeners into a world of flamenco. After great international success and collaborations with musicians such as Iggy Pop and KT Tunstall, Keren Ann will be giving two performances with the Non Standards Project. Brilliant guitarist Elon Turgeman, a jazz pioneer and drummer Adam Nussbaum (USA), a living legend will play songs from “Climb Up” and entertain the audience with their melodies and improvisations. The “guitar hero” of New York’s jazz scene will play original music and covers of American and Israeli pop and rock songs, improvising everything but the set list!

 

While Keren Ann works mainly in Paris and New York, her visits to Israel over the years have made their mark. During her last visit, she appeared with Shlomi Shaban and Avishai Cohen in a well-received series of special performances. “Non Standards” is a musical project of the Yellow Submarine that hosts various artists and gives their works a unique jazz arrangement. It has released two albums since its founding in 1999. Its current director is pianist and arranger Tomer Bar. In its current incarnation, Non Standards has collaborated with many prominent musicians including Alon Oleartchik, Yoni Rechter, Efrat Gosh, Tamar Eisenman, Mika Karni, and Maor Cohen. During the 2016 Jerusalem Jazz Festival, “Non Standards” performed with Rickie Lee Jones. Non Standards” is Tomer Bar (piano, musical director, arranger), ItaiKriss (flute), Nitzan Bar (guitar), YoraiOron (bass), and Ofri Nehemya (drums), with special guest Avishai Cohen (trumpet). The performance is produced by the Yellow Submarine, with support from the MifalHaPais Council for the Culture and the Arts and with support from the Jerusalem Foundation.

 

The jam sessions will take place on Wednesday and Thursday nights, beginning at 11:30 and lasting till morning. Shuttles to the Yellow Submarine will leave the Israel Museum at the end of the shows, at 11:30 P.M.

A flagship production of the Israel Festival in collaboration with the Israel Museum and the Yellow Submarine, the Jerusalem Jazz Festival is supported by the Jerusalem Foundation, the Beracha Foundation, the Israel Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
