Maestro Yossi Payne, the music man and artistic director of the festival, curated and connected artists from here and there for three days with 18 (!) performances that you won’t want to miss, and so that you don’t miss a single show – this year you can purchase a PASS and enjoy all the shows.
Along with well-known and beloved names that are always wonderful to meet again at the festival, this year you will meet quite a few young and up-and-coming artists who preserve and refresh the Israeli and global jazz scene.
In the 36th edition of the festival, we are proud to announce the opening show of the Israeli super-group THIRD WORLD LOVE, in a one-time reunion show exclusive to the festival. After almost a decade of absence from the stage – Yonatan Avishai, Avishai Cohen, Omer Avital and Daniel Friedman return to play together in the port of Eilat. Another artist who will land and come straight to the festival is Jacob Collier from London who comes to us in his prime and in the middle of a world tour with 4 albums and 5 Grammy Awards. Grammy winner (3 to be exact) this time from the USA, Corey Henry will come up and perform with the famous keyboards, in a trio show that combines jazz with soul. In an original production for the festival, Gidi Gov will host Alon Olarchik, with non-standard performances of the hits we all love.
And close the festival with a final show conceived by Maestro Fine combining musicians from all his favorite genres – a super group that will form for the first time on the festival stage. Conducted by Neta Barzilai, Nono, Eko and Cohen will be guests for a cross-genre celebration of jazz with hip-hop and spoken word.
