Omer Klein, Haggai Cohen-Milo, Amir Bresler - "Life And Fire" - Jazzy hour, 23rd of May 2023
Jazz also grows in places far from its place of origin, it develops through musicians who take up and respect the tradition, adding something personal. A good strong example is the album "Life & Fire", which marks ten years of the trio led by pianist Omer Klein and including bassist Haggai Cohen-Milo and drummer Amir Bresler. Klein is based in Frankfurt, but the group's musical line-up contains influences from Latin America, the Middle East, New Orleans and New York. The three musicians altruistically share roles on the repertoire, reflecting the basic quality of this anniversary album. The bond formed over time, the uniting spirit that brings three personalities together in a flexible ensemble that tacitly takes any direction, regardless of depth or difficulty, with a consistent dose of good humour. The rhythm section follows the piano closely without stuttering, the measures and harmonies make us follow each piece closely, and the musically represented cultures coexist in sublime harmony. A universal picture, in a language that knows no boundaries. A celebration that gives us great joy.
