Lew Soloff (trumpet), has performed and recorded with the music world’s elite, including Gil Evans, Carmen McRae, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Quincy Jones, and George Benson, among countless others, as well as being an integral part of the Grammy-winning band Blood, Sweat and Tears from 1968 to 1973, winning nine gold discs and the Grammy for Best Record of the Year (1969).
French bassist Francois Moutin’s talents have been called upon by, among others, Jimmy Heath, Monty Alexander, Benny Powell, Lew Soloff, Steve Kuhn, Joe Locke, Billy Hart, Jeff Tain Watts, Victor Lewis, Billy Drummond, and Harry Belafonte. He also leads his own band in Europe, “The Moutin Reunion Band”, with his twin brother, Louis.
“Israeli Jazz Musician of the Year” at the age of only 21, Yotam Silberstein (guitar), in just six years since arriving in New York, has earned his place among the jazz elite by collaborating with such luminaries as James Moody, The Heath Brothers, Paquito D’ Rivera, Monty Alexander, Roy Hargrove, and the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Stars.
