One of NYC’s best young saxophonist and composers tears it up on a vibrant, exciting new jazz recording with a great cast of supporting musicians! You’ll ‘dig’ this.

‘The powerhouse Israeli tenorman Ofer Assaf brings an aggressively swinging edge to his playing alongside New Yorkers Jim Rotondi on trumpet, bassists Don Pate and Essiet Essiet, drummer Bruce Cox and underrated pianist Theo Hill. They come out of the gate charging hard on Assaf’s uptempo burner ‘Kingfisher 51,’ and the energy level doesn’t let up from there. Whether it’s the majestic Billy Harper tribute ‘The Archer,’ the Michael Brecker tribute Blues for MB, or the Trane-inspired Tame the Wild Beast, Asaf plays with conviction and clarity while also revealing a breathy ballad touch on ‘The Nearness of You.’ Highly recommended.’ -Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes

‘…Assaf sears the air…a high octane affair…Assaf also shows a great respect for the tradition…The way to break from the pack is by developing one’s own voice. Ofer Assaf surges ahead on Tangible Reality.’ -AllAboutJazz.com
