“Avital Meets Avital” – New Album for Avi Avital and Omer Avital
Avi Avital’s fourth album with Deutsche Grammophon, “Avital meets Avital,” is a collaboration with Omer Avital, an Israeli jazz bassist and composer based in New York. Avi has said, “It’s been a fantastic experience working with a musician of Omer’s caliber, and we were so lucky to be joined by pianist Yonathan Avishai and percussionist Itamar Doari. This has been an interesting exploration of jazz and world music, our Middle Eastern roots and our shared cultural heritage (though we aren’t related!) We are looking forward to touring the project in Europe this June.”
