Nitai Hershkovits: Time Grove (IL) Despite his young age, the pianist and composer Nitai Hershkovits can boast of a rich artistic output. He first became known following his cooperation with Avishai Cohen, the Israeli jazz musician. On the stage of the Teatr Nowy, Hershkovits played his Time Grove project which was born in collaboration with Rejoicer, the producer of his debut album, I Asked You a Question. Exploring the realm of samples, beats and electronics, the musicians invited the saxophone player Eyal Talmudi, to show the new face of this instrument.
Paul Shapiro: Shofarot Verses (US) – The composer and saxophonist Paul Shapiro became famous for his albums Midnight Minyan, It’s in the Twilight, and Essen released by John Zorn’s Tzadik label. His unique talent for combining Jewish musical traditions with contemporary genres such as jazz, soul and R&B produces unmistakable and innovative music styles. In addition to his individual projects, there is a long list of artists with whom Shapiro has collaborated, including Lou Reed, David Byrne, Jay-Z, Anthony and the Johnsons. The New York Times wrote that ‘Mr. Shapiro transforms the ritual of a Friday night Shabbat service into a rollicking downtown jam’. He is one of those artists whose passion and love for music emanates from every single note they play. For the Krakow audience Shapiro played pieces from their latest album, Shofarot Verses, released in 2014, enthusiastically received by listeners and critics alike.
