Amos Hoffman plays a blend of jazz, traditional middle eastern, and classical music on the lute-like Oud. Noam Lemish is a lyrical and energetic pianist based in Toronto. Lemish has performed with Sheila Jordan, John Handy, James Newton, and many others of note. In 2013 Amos Hoffman was awarded one of Israel’s most prestigious prizes – The Landau Prize for Arts and Sciences for outstanding achievement in the field of Jazz. The quartet combines unique jazz arrangements of traditional Israeli and Jewish songs with hard swinging renderings of jazz standards. “Hoffman may well be today’s Rosetta Stone of jazz, equally adept in middle eastern harmonies as he is in 52nd street swing…” – Downbeat Magazine.
