After a few months hiatus, we return to the friendly confines of the Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village for an exciting young guitarist, Rotem Siva, and his trio. Rotem is making quite a name for himself with his fusion of several musical genres, and listen to what some of the eminence grises of jazz are saying about Rotem:
“The gifted guitarist combines energy, ideas and undeniable chops..A remarkable talent and a welcome new voice on the scene.” DownBeat
"He lets you hear the innate sound of his instrument, using classic jazz-guitar tone with dynamics and a searching quality to his improvising.. He attains a kind of private language.. It’s the kind of thing that makes you listen harder." New York Times, Ben Ratliff
Rotem Sivan is, with no doubt, the next guitarist of our times. He is a leader and a listener.” Peter Bernstein
Some links to Rotem's music are below. I will post a suggestion for a pre-concert dinner later in the week; feel free to suggest something!
