Fans of classic vocal jazz should have a ball at the Shablul Jazz Club in Tel Aviv tonight (9 p.m.) when singer Daphna Levy fronts a set of standards and original compositions.
Levy will be joined by longtime collaborator octogenarian British-born saxophonist Merton Cahm, who also features on Levy’s Late Night Journey CD which came out in 2014.
The vocal side of the show will be augmented by veteran singer Nathan Cohen, who was a member of 1970s pop trio Haneshamot Hatehorot (The Pure Souls), with New York-based pianist Kobi Arad also in the fray.
Tonight’s show repertoire will include new arrangements of some of the songs from the album, and numbers from the Great Israeli Songbook, with ethnic music textures provided by wind instrument player Yoni Dror, whose instrumental arsenal will include bansuri (Indian flute), duduk (double-reed woodwind flute) and a shofar. The program will also include a jazzy tribute to David Bowie.For tickets: (03) 546-1891 and www.shabluljazz.com or www.daphnalevyjazz.com.
