Ayelet Rose Gottlieb (vocals & compositions), Anat Fort (piano) and Rafi Malkiel (trobmone), three talented Israeli jazz musicians based in New York City, perform selections from Ayelet Rose Gottlieb’s acclaimed song cycle Mayim Rabim, based on the Song of Songs (Tzadik label, 2006), and from her music to contemporary Hebrew poetry. A wonderful mixture of jazz, Sephardic, klezmer, and Middle Eastern rhythms, these songs combine the beauty and richness of Hebrew poetry with modern melodies and improvisation.
