On May 8 a landmark event will take place at the Third Ear – Jazz BaOzen establishment on Tel Aviv’s King George Street. The jazz mini-marathon marks the 10th anniversary of the Earsay record label, which over the last decade has put out CDs by a string of envelope-pushing jazz and alternative music artists the likes of saxophonist Albert Beger, pianist Daniel Sarid and, more recently, saxophonist Yonatan Kretzmer.

All the above will be on call on May 8 at the Third Ear to give the public a concentrated taste of some of the new music they, and like-minded artists, are still putting out there for growing, and faithful, audiences.
Venues like Hagaddah Hasmalit and Levontin 7 – run by Sarid and free flowing saxophonist Assif Tsahar – and several spots in Jerusalem often host concerts and even festivals dedicated to alternative jazz and new music acts.

Earsay’s debut release was Cries of Disillusion by Sarid, with Tsahar on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Ori Kaplan on alto sax, Oded Goldschmidt on bass and American Bob Mayer on drums. In addition to the musical content the CD caused something of a visual stir with photographs by Digi Dekel enhancing the ambience of the product. On May 8 Dekel will exhibit the series of photographs created for the Cries of Disillusion launch.
