One of the hits of this year’s winter edition of the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat was a surprising and eclectic show by Turkey-based Israeli percussionist Yinon Muallem and young New York-resident jazz pianist Guy Mintus.

Mintus is currently here for a brief home-country foray, and is taking the opportunity to present local jazz fans with some of his polished evolving oeuvre, at a gig at the Levontin 7 club in Tel Aviv this Friday (9:30 p.m.). He will be joined for the occasion by bassist Avri Borochov and Slovenian-born drummer Gasper Bertoncelj.

Mintus brings a highly varied offering of styles and disciplines to the table. He maintains a busy performing schedule in the jazz, ethnic and contemporary music scenes. He takes in elements from stride piano to Turkish modal music, Indian rhythms to Bach-style counterpoint, and from Jewish melodies to jazz standards, and has shared the stage with such Grammy winning artists and jazz luminaries as octogenarian jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb, now 94-year-old vocalist Jon Hendricks, Italian-born saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa and celebrated trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire.

The Levontin 7 date will feature material from various areas of musical endeavor, and will follow a typically free-flowing improvisational theme.
