Chilean piano player, singer, and composer Benjamin Furman presents his latest project, an interesting mixture of his main musical influences: instrumental jazz, klezmer, pop, and Middle Eastern, Latin, and South American traditional music.
In his second recital at Berklee, singer-songwriter, French horn player, and pianist Shachar Ziv will explore his musical roots with friends from around the world. The performance will include a traditional Israeli tune by David Zehavi with new lyrics in Spanish, new arrangements for music by Avishai Cohen and Alon Yavnai, and original songs in Hebrew and English.
“Pray For Doctors” is alto saxophonist Rie Oguchi's score for an imagined medical drama, featuring Oguchi's quartet playing a mix of jazz, funk, and fusion. Oguchi, a doctor before she came to Berklee, used her past work experience as an inspiration for her composition process.
