After great international success and collaborations with musicians such as Iggy Pop and KT Tunstall, Keren Ann will be giving two performances with the Non Standards Project. While Keren Ann works mainly in Paris and New York, her visits to Israel over the years have made their mark. During her last visit, she appeared with Shlomi Shaban and Avishai Cohen in a well-received series of special performances.
“Non Standards” is a musical project of the Yellow Submarine that hosts various artists and gives their works a unique jazz arrangement. It has released two albums since its founding in 1999. Its current director is pianist and arranger Tomer Bar. In its current incarnation, Non Standards has collaborated with many prominent musicians including Alon Oleartchik, Yoni Rechter, Efrat Gosh, Tamar Eisenman, Mika Karni, and Maor Cohen. During the 2016 Jerusalem Jazz Festival, “Non Standards” performed with Rickie Lee Jones.
“Non Standards” is Tomer Bar (piano, musical director, arranger), Itai Kriss (flute), Nitzan Bar (guitar), Yorai Oron (bass), and Ofri Nehemya (drums), with special guest Avishai Cohen (trumpet).
The performance is produced by the Yellow Submarine, with support from the Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and the Arts and with support from the Jerusalem Foundation.
