We just keep on churning out polished jazz artists by the dozen. One of the newer crop, a pianist by the name of Nuphar Fey, will unfurl some of her developing skills at the intimate Mazkeka venue on downtown Jerusalem’s Shoshan Street, on Saturday (10 p.m., doors open 9 p.m.).
Twentysomething pianist and composer Fey divides much of her time between her country of birth, Israel, and the Netherlands, where she spent a large slice of her formative years. Fey also bridges various musical genres, looking to forge her own path somewhere along the continuum between contemporary jazz and classical music. Her current project incorporates a wide palette of the cultural baggage she gleaned from the various places she has lived over the years, taking in touches of Latin, Spanish, Middle Eastern and French folk sounds, subtly woven into her evolving soundscape.
The Mazkeka audience will hear some of the material that is due to find its way onto Fey’s debut album which will be recorded in August.
The pianist’s partners in Jerusalem creative endeavor will be bassist Daniel Ashkenazi and drummer Gal Pettel.
