Opus One

Fiagd My favorite "Israeli-born" jazz musician (there are two Avishai Cohens and one Anat Fort of course, but...), and one of my favorite contemporary jazzman at all. He's a fabulous in every way - both as a composer/constructor, melodist, instrumentalist and an individual- or a band-thinking man. And again, probably as in any good thing in this world - modernity and a tradition are in a blissful embrace here.

This album was described as:

"Smartly played, swinging and evocative jazz album " DownBeat Magazine
"...his immersion in the bebop tradition while revealing a fresh and original voice" Jazz Times

"his expressive horn, imaginative pen and confident band-leading, Einav is already setting himself apart." All About Jazz NY

"Shauli Einav is a Titan of the tenor saxophone, a superman of the
soprano saxophone and a blowing bundle of virtuosity." Jazz Inside Magazine

"Einav's sound comes across as fresh and innovative - and after hearing this wonderful CD the listener may very well be driven immediately to the replay button." - Financial Times, Germany

"..Clearly a 28 years old to watch!" - Hallands Nyheter, Sweden
“His artistic approach captures the listener” Jazzthetik Magazine, Germany

"...One of Israel's elite musicians..." – Ma’ariv Daily, Israel

"Opus One has all of the elegance of the old masters while harmonically pushing things forward, and Einay’s not even thirty yet. Whatever happened to experience coming with age?" PopMatters

"Opus one" a disc of a rare maturity. Discovery is assured, one of the greatest albums of this year!" Cook&Book, Belgium

"..a treat for young and old ears looking for a new turn on. Solid stuff throughout." –Midwest Record

"There's always room for improvement from an initial effort, but it's hard to find where Einav can improve much from this solid and likeable album. " Something Else! Blog

"Jazz fans may not be talking about Israeli saxophonist Shauli Einav yet, but in time they will. Einav’s proper debut, Opus One, is quite an opening statement...boisterous affair heightened by Einav’s aggressive horn, a constant swing and urgent melodies." Audiophile Audition
