Album release : Songs of the degrees (2019, Blue Note Records)
Yaron Herman, piano
Ziv Ravitz, drums
Sam Minaie, double bass
What a journey Israeli pianist Yaron Herman has been on since he won the Victoire de la Musique in 2008. The moment this former basketball player sits down at the piano, he starts to interweave brilliantly the music of Gabriel Fauré with that of Britney Spears, Michel Portal and some of the very latest jazz artists. His most recent album Songs of the Degrees is once again being released on the Blue Note label. In it he joins forces with his faithful musical partner Ziv Ravitz on drums, Sam Minaie, Tigrans bass player, and Melody Gardot.
