About the Album

"Kadimuchka" - a great word invented by my childhood piano teacher, Raymonda Sheinfeld, to encourage me to go ahead and play as much as possible. Being a Russian speaking immigrant to Israel, where I was born and raised, My teacher added the affectionate suffix "chka" to the Hebrew word "Kadima" which means "go ahead". The tune is from my first album with my Paris based quintet, Yuval Amihai Ensemble. Hope you like it !

Personnel Damien Fleau: soprano sax; Etienne Bouyer: tenor & soprano sax; Oliver Degabriele: double bass: Gautier Garrigue: drums; Yuval Amihai: guitar & composition.

With an unusual formation, two saxophones, guitar, bass and drums, Yuval seeks to create a new means of expression closer to his musical aspirations. It borrows from Israeli folk songs based on its arrangements to make amazing new standards. His compositions are inspired by the variety of cultures he encounters during his youth.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
