Feat. Hermon Mehari (trompette)

Hermon Mehari’s anticipated debut album as a leader, “Bleu”, marks a new era in his career. The music covers both the ground of his contemporaries and his own original music in such a way to illustrate his current musical path. “Bleu” includes ECM recording artist Aaron Parks on piano, Blue Note recording artist Logan Richardson on alto saxophone, Peter Schlamb on vibraphone, Ryan J. Lee on drums and Rick Rosato on bass. Mehari was the recent winner of the 2015 Carmine Caruso International Trumpet Competition and a semifinalist in the 2014 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition. In 2014 he released the CD « Our Journey » with Diverse, his second with the group. Mehari maintains a touring schedule around the world with his own group and as a sideman.

Mehari was also the winner of the 2008 National Trumpet Competition and placed 2nd in the International Trumpet Guild competition in Sydney, Australia. As a founding member of Diverse, whose eponymous debut album on Seattle-based Origin Records reached the Top 40 on the Jazzweek Radio Charts, he has performed professionally with noted saxophonists Jaleel Shaw, Logan Richardson, Bobby Watson, Ben Van Gelder, and Tivon Pennicott. He has also performed with Aaron Parks, Joe Sanders, Hubert Laws, Randy Brecker, Tony Tixier, Dave Pietro, Clay Jenkins and many other great musicians.

Hermon Mehari received his BM in Jazz Performance from the University of Missouri – Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance in 2010. In addition to performing, he dedicates himself to being a serious educator and has participated in clinics and panels around the world.

Yuval Amihai Trio

Après ses deux albums « Yuval Amihai Ensemble » (2012) et « Longing » (2015), le guitariste et compositeur israélien Yuval Amihai sort son troisième album « I Ain’t Got Nothing but the Blues » sur le label Fresh Sound New Talent. Actuellement installé à New York, après avoir vécu 12 ans à Paris, Yuval exprime dans ce nouvel opus les différents univers culturels qui font partie de sa musique – les standards et le blues d’Amérique, la musique des films français ainsi que les chants israéliens. Les musiciens qui l’accompagnent sur ce troisième album sont eux aussi représentatifs de ces trois pays – la France (Gautier Garrigue et Damien Varaillon), les Etats-Unis (Hermon Mehari) et Israël (Amit Friedman) – et créent ainsi avec Yuval le son unique de sa musique.
