    Nitai Hershkovits: Time Grove (Israel)

    Despite his youth, pianist and composer Nitai Hershkovits has built an impressive artistic portfolio. He first gained recognition through his work with renowned Israeli jazz musician Avishai Cohen. At Teatr Nowy, Hershkovits presented his Time Grove project, a creative venture developed in collaboration with Rejoicer, the producer of his debut album, I Asked You a Question. This project explores samples, beats, and electronics, and features saxophonist Eyal Talmudic, who brings a new dimension to the instrument’s sound.

    Paul Shapiro: Shofarot Verses (United States)

    Renowned composer and saxophonist Paul Shapiro has distinguished himself with acclaimed albums such as Midnight Minyan, it’s in the Twilight, and Essen, all released under John Zorn’s Tzadik label. His exceptional talent lies in blending Jewish musical traditions with contemporary genres like jazz, soul, and R&B, resulting in unique and innovative styles.

    In addition to his solo work, Shapiro has collaborated with notable artists including Lou Reed, David Byrne, Jay-Z, and Antony and the Johnsons. The New York Times has praised him, noting that “Mr. Shapiro transforms the ritual of a Friday night Shabbat service into a rollicking downtown jam.” His passion and love for music are evident in every note he plays.

    For the Krakow audience, Shapiro performed selections from his latest album, Shofarot Verses (2014), which has been met with enthusiastic acclaim from both listeners and critics.
