Talat


"TALAT is a dynamic new ensemble that plays original music crossing the borders of Jazz, Middle Eastern groove and Klezmer Featuring a quintet of some of the most talented players out of the new generation, this is a brilliant debut CD that will delight fans of Masada, Rashanim, Satlah and the Hasidic New Wave." JOHN ZORN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "TALAT Quintet brings something unxepected to every track, playing blues, funk and even mellower tunes has compelling chemistry in abundance.

JOHN ZORN ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "TALAT Quintet brings something unxepected to every track, playing blues, funk and even mellower tunes has compelling chemistry in abundance. This kind of fluidity cannot be accomplished unless solid relationships are both ecnouraged and formed between musicians." ALL ABOUT JAZZ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "TALAT seamlessly merges Jewish Klezmer stylizations with Middle Eastern modalities into a largely, persuasive modern jazz vibe. With sonorous flows, prophetic themes and propulsive shifts in momentum, the musicians indulge in tension/release episodes, topped off with melodic storylines, where the artists fuse explorative frameworks with a dancehall type sensibility. Overall, this is a radiantly produced session, firmed-up by the group’s conveyance of good cheer and excellence in execution." EJAZZ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TALAT, an exciting quintet joins the ranks of groups like New Klezmer Trio and Masada with their release of 'The Growl', Has the ability to add a strong underlying harmonic foundation or simply mix the obvious amounts of klezmer and jazz, free or otherwise, with classical music influence and up to date harmonic sense that leans toward jazz from the past decade.

This album has something for everybody and TALAT is a group worthy of a lot more attention. JAZZ IMPROV -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TALAT shapes klezmer with a fusion of other ancient and modern sounds blends drone, middle-eastern strings, and even a quiet echo of prog rock in a meditation showing how music can often get closer to the dynamics of religious feeling than any other art form and expresses a longing for an encounter with the holy wherever it may be found. Its mix of compositional and improvisational qualities make this sensibility so palpable – just as faith is often about both tradition and breaking with tradition, the foundation of the old and the radical promise of the new. ZEEK -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TALAT is a NY based quintet with exceptional abilities and technique- hearing this album really knocked me out completely.

Never before have I heard such a harmonious and clever interchange of Klezmer and jazz, almost painfully brilliant. The music cleverly moves between the Klezmer-like melodies and the jazz-like improvisations with such ease and elegance that the transition seems to be perfectly natural and smooth. The arrangements are devilishly clever and intricate, but easy on the ear, so this wonderful music should please even the less experienced listeners who had little experience with contemporary improvised music. This is a rare gem and an essential example of music transcending the limitations of what is considered humanly possible.
