descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Derived straight from the classic Sax-Bass-drum trio, Kretzmer's latest projects augments this standard setting with the addition of an extra double-bass, thus creating a different balance, sound, deepness and flavor yet still maintaining some of the esthetics and clarity that made the sax trio so popular in the first place. One might say this quartet's sound is obvious yet unfamiliar simultaneously.

Kretzmer's compositions, written specifically with these great bassists (Sean Conly and Reuben Radding) and drummer (Mike Pride) in mind, take full advantage of the profound, even haunting, sound a band of this instrumentation can create and act as a vague frame for further development and expression."-OutNow Recordings


Artist Biographies:

"Before moving to NYC in 2010, Jerusalem born tenor saxophonist and composer Yoni Kretzmer was an active member in the growing Tel Aviv nu-music scene leading various groups such as "New Dilemma" (chamber/free jazz string quintet) and "Far From Home" (free/folk quintet with two acoustic guitars). For the premier of "New Dilemma" (Jerusalem/Khan Theater) Tel Aviv Jazz Festival Producer Barack Weiss wrote for NANA "It has been a long time since I have last experienced such a sincere and impressive performance, in its willingness of the artist to expose the full force of his most inner feelings." Kretzmer has been a sideman for Albert Beger, Harold Rubin and performed and curated many shows and festivals including October Jazz Fest, Red Sea Jazz Festival and Tel Aviv Jazz festival.

Yoni attended the American School of Modern Music (Paris, France) and has studied with Rick Margitza, Matthieu Donarier, Ellery Eskelin and Assif Tsahar. He currently leads "Two Bass Quartet" (Sean Conly, Reuben Radding, Mike Pride) and "66 Boxes" (Daniel Levin, Eyal Maoz, Andrew Drury) and has released five CD`s under his own name: New Dilemma, One Afternoon (Jacoby, Fershtman), Nevertheless (Ajemian, Pride), Overlook (Levy, Ran, Peskoff) and ProtsestMusic (Niggenkemper, Walter). New Dilemma and Weight were rated as top 10 albums of the year by Ha`aretz. Kretzmer actively runs record label Out Now Recordings."
