Born in Israel to a Moroccan father and a Yemenite mother, now living in the U.S., the bassist, composer, bandleader, Omer Avital, is a major force in the New York music scene for over twenty years. Avital’s genre-defying ensembles are pushing the boundaries of jazz expression with swing and spiritual sustenance in equal measure. On this new album, recorded in Paris, Avital delivers a strong statement, with a powerful sound, joyful rhythms and oriental melodies that draw on gospel and soul. Avital is continually evolving contemporary jazz, rightly being called one of the most unique musicians of his generation.

Thank you to Yonathan Avishai, Asaf Yuria, Alexander Levin and Ofri Nehemya for their beautiful and soulful playing on this album! Thank you to Daniel Freedman, Joel Frahm, Greg Tardy, Johnathan Blake and Ali Jackson for their musical contributions to this music, to Pini Shavit, Frdric Gluzman and Pascal Bussy for contributing to the making of this album, and to my beloved wife and son — Liat and Zohar Avital.
Muhammad’s Market is written for and dedicated to my great friend and master jazz musician, Ali Muhammad Jackson Jr. Ramat Gan is dedicated to my beloved mother, Dalia (Meoded) Avital, who was born and raised in the city of Ramat Gan, Israel. New Yemenite Song is dedicated to my beloved father-in-law, Yechiel Yeminy, with whom I share the love and admiration for our traditional Yemenite music. –Omer Avital
