Guitarist Rotem Sivan has a lush, intimate tone, paired with an elegant sense of line and a world traveler’s disposition. Originally from Jerusalem, Sivan has been a New Yorker for several years now. He came up through the Smalls orbit, playing with and learning from the likes of guitarist Peter Bernstein, drummer Ari Hoenig, and bassist Ben Street. The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome Mr. Sivan and his trio back to our stage, this Thursday, March 3rd.
This past year, Sivan released his third album as a leader A New Dance (Fresh Sound). Sivan and his bandmates Haggai Cohen Milo on bass and Colin Stranahan on drums have an almost uncanny rapport, slipping through Sivan’s fleet-footed compositions with ease. Check out the band’s inviting sound in the video preview below.
Sivan will also be joined by special guest vocalist Gracie Terzian for the evening’s two sets. Terzian released her debut EP in 2015—Saints and Poets—and received positive notice from critics Ted Gioia and Terry Teachout. Terzian and Sivan have been collaborating more frequently as of late—check out their version of the Jobim classic “Insensatez” below.
The Rotem Sivan Trio plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016.
