These extraordinary young jazz artists bring astounding creative energy and virtuosity to the final concert of the festival. Please call 609 258-2787 or visit mccarter.org for tickets.
JEZVE is comprised of musicians from Israel, Turkey, Peru, and South Korea. The group’s compositions are derived from combining improvisation-based contemporary music with ethnic elements from band members’ homelands. The result is an assortment of ideas from various cultures that come together to form original music that pushes the boundaries of improvisation. JEZVE includes Sagit Zilberman (saxophone), Kyumin Shim (piano), Osmar Okuma (bass) and Can Kemal (drums/percussion).
