Gadi Lehavi Trio
Saturday, Apr 1, 2017 | 8:00 PM
Born in 1996, Gadi Lehavi shares his birthday with the great Duke Ellington. Lehavi was drawn to jazz, playing by ear from an early age and experimenting with improvisation.
He has already played with many of the greatest musicians of our time, including Eli Degibri, with whom he performed at the J in 2016.
“He’s from another planet,” said saxophonist David Liebman, recipient of the 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Award and founder/artistic director of the International Association of Schools of Jazz and artist in residence at the Manhattan School of Music. “We get amazingly blasé when a new 16- or 18-year-old kid is killing or burning or happening, because we see it a lot. This guy even goes beyond that.”
