Blue and white and ‘Noir’ in Givatayim
By Barry Davis

Titans of the local and ethnic music scene are featured in the upcoming Festijazz festival.

The Festijazz festival closes out its first decade of existence at Givatayim Theater next week with a highly varied program. As an Israeli jazz-based event, most of the usual suspects from the local scene are there, with the jazz offerings colored by some extra-mural musical contributions.

Trombonist Avi Lebovich will front his high-powered and highly polished Orchestra big band (June 17 at 10 p.m.) with rocker Asaf Amdursky joining the fray, and pianist Omri Mor will present a program of Andalusian music-laced jazz and will host veteran ethnic music titan Shlomo Bar in the bargain (June 16 at 9 p.m.).

One of our most successful jazz exports, pianist Anat Fort, will once again join forces with Ethiopian-born bluesy jazz saxophonist Abate Barihon in a cross-cultural musical venture (June 18 at 9 p.m.), while teenage pianist Tomer Bar will front a trio of double bass player Uri Kutner and drummer Ofri Nehemia, with veteran saxophonist Daniel Zamir putting in a guest appearance.
