Jazz Concert of Bert Seager Trio

The Bert Seager Trio is a chamber-jazz trio that plays all original music, exploring grooves and sonic landscapes not usually associated with improvised jazz.  Audiences delight in their joyful expression of musical intimacy, the shimmering transparency of their sound, and the sense that these musicians are as much involved in listening as in playing.

 

Bert Seager, an American jazz pianist, composer, recording artist, and educator, is a member of the faculty at the New England Conservatory. Bert has led performances in international jazz festivals in Canada, Peru, Bulgaria, Jordan, Ecuador, Israel, and 15 times in Japan. As a composer, he is a threetime recipient of the prestigious MacDowell Colony fellowship, an artists residency program in Peterborough, New Hampshire. He has recorded 15 compact discs which have all been released internationally to critical acclaim. Cadence Magazine says Bert’s music is filled with “effervescent optimism.” And the Boston Globe wrote that his “kind of exuberance makes the jazz world go round.”         

Israeli double bass player Ehud Ettun has performed at venues ranging from New York's Blue Note to Washington's Kennedy Center to Boston's Symphony Hall and has collaborated with artists such as Danilo Perez, Fred Hersh, Eli Degibri, Anat Cohen, Ferenc Nemeth, Donny McCaslin, Frank London and others.

A compelling new voice on the world music scene, Israeli percussionist Yshai Afterman draws on Indian, Turkish, Persian and Arabic traditions, blending them with modern innovations into a highly technical, melodic and rhythmic style. Yshai is endorsed by Cooperman Frame Drums (USA), Hands On Drums Percussion (Germany) and Kandu Cajons (Israel).

Supported by the Israeli Cultural Institute in Budapest.
