shay hazan quintet
Bassist and composer Shay Hazan, based in Tel-Aviv, presents his latest group release with new reflections and directions.
The band, two-horns strong and backed by the classic piano, bass and drums unit, continues to strike ripples in its near and farther surroundings. Only that in Hazan's case, backing does not mean hiding. His significant bass work carries the group into the magical realm of Gnawa music from Morocco, the new wave of Hip-Hop, and the 1960's Chicago free jazz and human rights movement, all these casted into a fresh blend of old and new flavours.
