Tevet Sela is a virtuoso saxophonist and composer, and one of Israel's most prominent musicians. Over the last years, Tevet has been leading his own quartet, which exclusively performs his music. In his repertoire, Tevet weaves together elements of soulful Jazz-funk with African and Middle Eastern music. Tevet's style of music came from him being exposed at an early age to the rich blend of cultures found in Israeli society, ranging from Jewish to North African music, and from Middle Eastern to Western music. This singular mix of influences characterizes Tevet's instantly recognizable and individual style
"Band leader composer and saxophonist Tevet Sela has straightforwardly produced some of the most mindful modern jazz in Israel. Tevet Sela follows a sense of 'let it go'. When this magical moment happens, his saxophone will shrill, snarl and weep every note to collide into a turning mass of sounds. Tevet Sela injects a high skill onto this release with creativity, spontaneity and passion, offering a very original music which is certainly worth the time."
