Alon Nechushtan

For Those Who Cross the Seas

Look at those players Alon Nechushtan brought together for this gig! The late, great Roy Campbell; reed masters Daniel Carter and Sabir Mateen; mayor of the NYC avant-jazz scene William Parker; versatile drummer Federico Ughi. Then listen: they all live up to their reputations. And then there’s Nechushtan himself, born in Tel Aviv and long a thriving presence in New York as both composer and improviser.

This concert happened at a time of considerable ferment on the NYC scene, with established virtuosi meeting the next generation—often, as was the case this night, in Brooklyn and specifically Williamsburg venues, of which Zebulon was one of the greatest supporters of the improvisation scene documented so well in Cisco Bradley’s recent book The Williamsburg Avant-Garde: Experimental Music and Sound on the Brooklyn Waterfront.

Press Quotes:

“A fantastic pianist-composer with abundant chemistry and boundless eclecticism.”—All About Jazz

“A talent to watch, with a surfeit of ideas, an unbridled spirit and bold, two-fisted sense of architecture.”—DownBeat
