Zamir, Daniel: Redemption Songs (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Returning to Tzadik with a powerful Israeli quartet, super star Daniel Zamir plays his brilliant blend of JewishJazz with a deep spiritual power. Performing on alto and soprano saxophone, his solos burn with a white hot intensity. Joined here by some of his strongest musical associates, including Mark Guiliana and Shai Maestro, this is far and away his best CD to date. Scorching and fluid saxophone fireworks over shimmering harmonies and odd time signatures from one of the guiding lights of the Israeli Jazz scene."-Tzadik

"Daniel Zamir is probably one of the most influencial and busy musicians in Israel. Zamir is a virtuoso sax player / composer of what could be defined as "Jewish Jazz", fusing together elements of Jewish sounds and high quality jazz, together with ethnic and world music elements. Zamir's albums are the most successful jazz albums ever to be recorded in Israel, with high acclaim from the media and critics and with tremendous sellings ("Amen", released in 2006 sold over 12000 copies in Israel only - the most selling jazz album in Israel ever!). Zamir has performed and recorded with the biggest names in Israel's pop and rock scene, such as Eviatar Banai, Beri Sacharoff, Ehud Banai, Yoni Rechter and more. Zamir has been performing as a special guest with Reggae Meggastar Matisyahu on his European tours and in the US. Both of them performed together with Sting on his last visit to Israel in 2006.

Zamir has recorded 4 albums on John Zorn's "Tzadik" label, the last one included Joey Baron, Uri Caine and Greg Cohen. Zamir performed with John Zorn's Masada and Electric Masada numerous times in Israel and the US, and is considered by Zorn to be one of the most interesting and important sax player of our generation. Zamir (32) won the 2010 Prime Minister Award for outstanding jazz composers, the youngest musician ever to win the prestigious award."-Daniel Zamir website
