The Kalaparush Maurice Macintyre Trio
Premiere in Israel
18.2, Saturday, 20:00, Hall 1
The annual spotlight that the festival turns towards free jazz is aimed this year towards one of the distinctive and veteran saxophonists on the scene. "Ever since I can remember myself, I listened to music" says Macintyre, educated in Chicago, as a son to professional musical parents.
In his childhood he was exposed to the music of the legendary performers Sonny Stite and Johnny Gryphon, and as a young musician has already established himself as one of the founders of the AACM, the bold musician association in Chicago, whose interest was in free improvised music. Macintyre collaborated with the best artists in the genre like Lester Bowie, Sam Rivers, Rosko Mitchell, Jack DeJohnette and Dave Holland.
The ensemble that will accompany Macintyre in his festival performance, is characterized in its rich musical scope, and emphasizes the warm sound of Macintyres saxophone.

Life in the "land of Canaan" under the same skies: on this earth, we are all Canaanites.
Powerful and sweeping music, that creates a non-boundary musical heterogeneity.
The music composed by the drummer Shay Vetzer draws from Jewish, African and Native American influences and from the music and language of Ladino, from west and east, and enables every listener to individually connect to what is happening on stage.
