The 2018 NYC Winter Jazzfest presents the Eli Degibri Quartet!

As an instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader, Eli Degibri boasts a seemingly bottomless fount of artistry. “An exceptionally melodic improviser with a big, bold tenor tone” (+Bill Milkowski  , Jazz Times), he’s been recording and performing extensively for two decades as both a leader and as an MVP sideman with the groups of two jazz legends, +Herbie Hancock  (1999–2002) and Al Foster (2002–2011). It is rare in our time to hear a tenor saxophonist exploring such a wide range of expression: alternately sharp and mellow, funky or caressing, sometimes on the verge of bursting with the urgency of his playing. That’s why Herbie Hancock unequivocally states that Eli Degibri “has the potential to be a formidable force in the evolution of jazz.” Don’t miss this rare New York appearance by a future giant of jazz!

Eli Degibri: Tenor / Soprano Sax
Tom Oren: Piano
Alon Nir: Bass
Eviatar Slivnik: Drums

“The caliber of which is a rare find in jazz today.” - +Herbie Hancock 

“an exceptionally melodic improviser with a big, bold tenor tone" -JazzTimes
 
“Masterpiece” - +DownBeat 

“One of the best saxophonists around.” -The New York City Jazz Record
 
“Don’t miss him!” - The New York Times

“Cliff Hangin’ is one of the most rewarding and satisfying albums I have heard in the last decade.” -JazzTimes

Thank you to the incredible Jeff 'Tain' Watts, James Genus and Andy Ezrin for such a beautiful rendition of Cliff Hangin' in honor of Michael Brecker at The #NearnessOfYou Concert last night at Lincoln Center. ⠀

And thank you to Susan Brecker and Darryl Pitt for all the important work you've done and continue to do to advance cancer research. It was a privilege to have been invited to support such a tremendous cause, much bigger than any of us on that stage.⠀

We had a blast performing for you, Denver! We got really lucky; not only was the audience incredibly warm, but so was the weather! See you soon!

“I miss New York all the time, and I’m always so happy when I come here. You can hear some of the best jazz in the world here. But I’m even happier because I know that when the visit is over, I’m going back home.”

The Zone proudly presents The Degibri Big Band with some very special guests in an exceptional night of jumpin’ jazz.

Back in the day, big bands were the heart of dance parties. Although nowadays live jazz is usually played in a normal concert format, this night’s concept follows the more traditional dancefloor layout. Feel free to wear your evening dresses, suits and ties, hats etc. and make this a full scale jazz party!

At the helm of the evening we have Mr. Eli Degibri. whose totally outstanding career path has brought him from Yafo to The White House alongside a group of living jazz giants. His story justifies a longer biography, but let’s just feel blessed to have him direct this musical celebration.

Along with the maestro and 10 of the best musicians to be found in the burning hot Israeli jazz scene, a series of very special guests will be joining:

Alon Olearchik / Shlomi Shaban / Efrat Gosh / Ilan Salem / Avichai Ornoy / Anna Tabachnikov / Gilad Braunstein

The band:

Eli Degibri – Saxophone, Director
Saxophones – Hagay Amir, Erez Barnoy, Yuval Dravkin
Trombones – Moran Bar On, Oded Meir
Trumpets – Udi Chonstkovsky, Grisha Rivkin
Piano – Tom Oren
Contrabass – Avri Borochov
Drums – Aviv Cohen

Doors open at 21.00, show starts at 22.00
