Works (among others) from the current Album »Songs of the Degrees«

The French-Israeli jazz pianist Yaron Herman, who calls Keith Jarrett and Paul Bley his great role models, is constantly on the lookout for new challenges off the beaten path of musical convention. After eight years of travel on solo and duo paths, he has returned to the trio format. Although playing together in a trio means freedom with restrictions, according to Herman, this has spurred his creativity to even greater heights. His chosen compatriots have a lot to do with that as well, however. The Iranian-American bassist Sam Minaie has been involved in various projects with Tigran Hamasyan and toured with Melody Gardot. The percussionist Ziv Ravitz, who also comes from Israel and lives in New York, describes Herman as his »musical brother«. The trio traverses auditory scenarios between lyrical-chamber music and bluesy-groovy moods with concentration and inspiration. The three musicians, finely attuned to one another, take advantage of opportunities for improvisatory spaces and soaring solos, flirt with pop colours or traditional Israeli music, experiment with daring rhythmic structures and build cathedrals of sound filled with intoxicating energy.
