“The sound of Salem’s flute is lyrical, full of expression, as if floating in a dreamlike experience… this is an ensemble that interacts, enjoys playing their music… It’s not jazz standards. This is the sophisticated art of improvisation.”

Y. Harsonsky, Ynet, Israel

‘Composer Ilan Salem shines in the Israeli Jazz scene as the prime creator of a unique statement in composition and improvisation – his music fuses the jazz aspect – cosmopolitan and authentic – and he succeeds in creating a new and exciting “fabric”.’

Prize committee, Prime minister’s composer’s prize for Jazz, Israel
