Meet the highly talented Israeli musicians Nitai Hershkovits and Or Bareket. Pianist Hershkovits is equally at home in jazz as he is in classical music. His playing is elegant and tinged with melancholy. He has performed at major festivals like the Antibes Jazz Festival and Montreux. Bassist Bareket's career is one of the fastest moving on the New York jazz scene. His distinctive improvisation style reflects Mediterranean, South American and North African influences, but is nonetheless always rooted in the traditions of American jazz.
