Where words fail, music speaks.
CASA DE TEATRO JAZZ FESTIVAL 2009: "Los solos de Elazar en los saxos tenor y soprano fueron de primera."
"Yehonatan Elazar began the evening with a roster of soft-jazz inflected tunes that fused Sephardic melodies with flavors of the Mediterranean and Latin America."
"The unusual transliterations don’t end with the titles; Elazar infuses these melodies and other discoveries with a soulful lyricism that channels centuries of wandering into startling improvisations. Lest you think Ladino jazz is not rocket science, Elazar has in fact also studied aerospace engineering, and he has certainly learned how to send a melody into outer space.”
