Jazzbird Nights: Or Bareket Quartet

June 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Saturday, June 1st, at 7:00pm, Jazzbird welcomes the Or Bareket Quartet. Featured artists include Or Bareket– Bass, Godwin LouisSaxophone, Jeremy CorrenPiano, and Savannah HarrisDrums.

Born in Jerusalem to parents of Moroccan, Iraqi, Argentinian, and Eastern European descent, raised between Buenos-Aires and Tel-Aviv, and based out of Brooklyn since 2011, Or Bareket is one of the most prominent bassists of his generation, as well as a composer and bandleader with an eclectic yet meticulously cohesive approach.

Winner of the 2011 International Society of Bassists’ jazz competition, Bareket’s distinct lyricism, rhythmic dexterity, and groove-centric approach are clearly present in his playing and writing alike. Growing up tri-lingual, Bareket is fascinated by how different languages and cultures intersect and diverge. His creative process is an investigation of spaces between and within languages, continuously synthesizing the different worlds he inhabits into a personal aesthetic that honors all of them: his ancestral North African and Latin-American folklores, his life-long study of Black American music, and his experiences making music with some of today’s foremost artists across a wide range of musical generations and stylistic orientations; Bareket has worked extensively with bands led by the likes of Joel Ross, Etienne Charles, Camila Meza, Fred Nardin, and Ari Hoenig, and has performed with artists such as Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, and Ben Wendel, to name a few.

The Or Bareket Quartet is a container for the ongoing exploration of spaces between and within languages and cultures. Its four group members use Bareket’s original compositions as a vehicle through which to metabolize and integrate the different worlds and experiences they inhabit into a cohesive sound that accommodates all of it and dilutes none of it. Savannah Harris, the group’s drummer, describes the quartet’s style as a musical equivalent of capoeira: the Afro-Brazilian martial-art/dance-form where people seem to be both sparring and dancing at the same time.

Experience an evening filled with wonderful jazz and choose from a fine selection of wine, craft beers, and catered dinner options for purchase.
