Hadar Noiberg is one of the stars in this year’s Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, which takes place at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque Wednesday through Friday. The 33-year-old New York-based flutist will use her Friday night gig (11:30 p.m.) to present material from her latest release, From the Ground Up (Dot Time Records), to the local audience.
The album proffers a wide range of styles, textures and sensibilities that range from Noiberg’s root Israeli influences to African beats, liberally seasoned with groove and some rock-oriented departures. There is also plenty of lyrical endeavor on the CD, occasionally underscored by some Bachesque line, as well as some less structured passages.
For the forthcoming show, as on the CD, Noiberg opted for an intriguing instrumental lineup, with fellow New York jazz community member Haggai Cohen-Milo on bass and Ofri Nehemia – already a seasoned professional at the age of just 21– on drums. The trio’s earnest intent will be enhanced by a guest slot for high-energy, free-flowing guitarist Yonatan Albalak.For tickets and more information: *9080 and www.zappa-club.co.il, and http://hadarnoiberg.com.
