With the Rebal Alkhodari Band at Bancaja Fundacíon
I had the honor of being asked by Rebal to play in his band for a concert at Bancaja Fundacíon in Valencia. We played swinging Jazz Middle Eastern and classical music fusion. Rebal has a growing following for his blend of Syrian, Iraqi, Moroccan, Sephardic and Arabic original tunes.
One of my favorite pieces of the evening was our original arrangement of “Erbarme dich, mein Gott” from Bach’s St. Matthews Passion, featuring piano (me), clarinet, and voice. If you don’t feel uplifted and like moving your body, then you may not be alive. Check your pulse!
