Label founder and New York Downtown saxophonist in a solo album of free improvisations with Tsahar's particularly lyrical and honest approach to the horn.

Tsahar, Assif
Ayn Le-Any

Tsahar, Assif: Ayn Le-Any (Hopscotch Records)
Label: Hopscotch Records    
Released in: USA    

"Freestyle solo saxophone albums are rare, but hardly a novelty, and there have been excellent ones recorded by, among others, Peter Brotzmann, Anthony Braxton, and Evan Parker. Assif Tsahar can be mentioned in the same breath as these giants, as he has grasped the technical difficulties and idiosyncrasies of his horns and absorbed the aesthetic to which he aspires. The end results, as displayed on this album, are solid and exciting, and although they do not break new ground, they are in a sense an initiation into a higher realm for the Israeli-raised artist. A full-length solo album is a difficult, demanding endeavor, as the performer must continuously come through with new ideas. [...]"-Steven Loewy, All Music
