Etude 2 (merengue) from Universos on jazz&people
Yotam Silberstein, guitar
Vitor Gonçalves, piano
Daniel Dor, drums
On Universos, Silberstein’s constellation of original compositions is based on his experience traveling the
globe, influenced by musical traditions of Brazil (including Choro, Frevo and Samba), Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Andalusia, the Near East, as well as blues, jazz, and rock. The album displays Silberstein’s exceptional talent, delivering this universe of music to listeners’ ears.
“His tone dark and lush, his music struck through with passion and intimacy. Silberstein’s soulfulness is tempered by seriousness that gives his music tremendous weight, as his innate talent burns through every bar… A true polyglot with an adroit skill set, Silberstein is on a journey to watch.” – Ken Micallef in JazzTimes Magazine
Universos features Silberstein’s Trio with Brazilian pianist and accordionist Vitor Gonçalves, and the Israeli drummer and percussionist Daniel Dor. Special guests include Israeli flutist Itai Kris, Argentine multi-instrumentalist/composer Carlos Aguirre, and Swiss harmonica player Grégoire Maret.
