Jazz Without Borders

The group Jazz Without Borders explores the influence that Jewish composers had in creating the canon of songs known as the "Great American Songbook." Some of these songs were the soundtrack to the American dream myth in the 20th century. The group will present their interpretations of popular songs from that era and discuss the Jewish values hidden within the music of those composers.
Jazz Without Borders is a product of the vibrant and multicultural New York jazz scene, where Israeli born musicians have had a strong presence in recent decades. Co-led by saxophonist Nir Naaman & drummer Nadav Snir Zelniker and joined by pianist Eldad Zvulun and bassist Daniel Ori, all band members are active and in demand musicians on the scene. The group is set to explore the common grounds of jazz traditions, Jewish and Israeli music.
$18 for Beth El members, $25 for non-members.
