It's a grower, snappy.

About the Album

Making music since the age of seven, despite never acquiring musical education, May Fall has always aspired to educate himself. His longtime band Road to Evenmind has been a creative incubator where he and his friends matured together, both personally and musically, during more than two decades. After experimenting with a wide variety of musical genres, including his recent synth-pop project spawning two unforgettable singles “Same Code” and “Blind Zone”, he revived his old dream of exploring the realms of jazz-fusion, while seamlessly blending inspirations from a variety of musical domains, such as pop, electronic, funk and rock. In this experience, May Fall, on piano, keyboards, and occasionally vocals, is collaborating with drummer Niv Majar and bassist Itai Tzarfati, as well as with guitarist I. David Robin which shows up for a guest appearance, a combination forming a highly enjoyable display of superb musicianship, The May Fall Group. This endeavor results in a highly diverse album bouncing from rich contemporary jazz compositions (“Mental Maze”, “Spaceport”), through atmospheric musical journeys to exotic corners of the world (“Alma Oscura”, ”Old Memories”, “Recharge”) and energetic multilayered jazz-fusion tracks (“Overload”, “Time Expander”), to memorable jazz-pop anthems that manage to crossover to mainstream while incorporating thought invoking lyrics (“Mood-Swinger”, “Indifferent”, “Oblivious to the Obvious”).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
