Jazz singer Daphna Levy will bring her singular talents to the Ivria Tuscana Farm in Ramat Hasharon tonight together with her quartet of pianist Ofer Portugali, drummer Leon Haviv and octogenarian British- born saxophonist Merton Cahm. Veteran vocalist Natan Cohen will fill the guest artist berth.

The concert will be based on material from Levy’s recently released debut album Late Night Journey, which she recorded together with Italian pianist Tony Pancella and internationally acclaimed reedman Lew Tabackin on tenor saxophone.

The 45-year-old Levy is largely a homegrown talent and, unlike many of her colleagues, did not learn the technical side of her craft at an institution of higher education in the US. She mainly found her own way through the rudiments of jazz and singing, with practically the only formal musical instruction in her CV being a few lessons she took with noted California-based vocal coach Seth Riggs. Riggs’s student roster includes some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Ray Charles and Madonna.

The Ramat Hasharon show repertoire will include jazz standards as well as original songs written by Levy.
