Sunday, April 15 • 4:00pm

A JAZZ CONCERT OF THE ISRAELI and THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK is a unique musical project where classical Israeli songs are played in a jazz style. It is common in jazz that the American songbook is played in jazz but to the best of our knowledge, no one has taken the Israeli songbook and played it in a jazz style. In this concert, we feature legendary jazz musician, Ira Sullivan, as well as Marc Berner and Gideon Vigderhous and additional musicians of the rhythm section who will lend their musical creativity in such a manner that this will be a joy to listen to (plus some vocal surprises).

Some of the Israeli songs will include songs by Naomi Shemer, Shmulik Kraus, Shlomi Shabbat and others. From the American songbook, we will include Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Rogers and Hart and others.
