“When words fail, music speaks.” That quote from the great Danish storyteller, Hans Christian Anderson perfectly captures the spirit of “Love Letters,” this latest album from virtuoso jazz guitarist, Roni Ben-Hur. During his more than 40 years of performing, composing and teaching jazz, Roni has stood out as one of the most versatile, worldly and sensitive artists of his generation. Whether coaxing his guitar to speak with scat-like agility or to whisper with gentle, melodic intensity, his message is always clear – this music comes straight from the heart.
“Love Letters” is a musical mosaic of moments that invites us to reconnect with what matters most in life. For Roni, what matters most is sharing love through music, and on this album he shares it with some of the leading voices in today’s jazz world, trumpeter, Ingrid Jensen, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer, Jason Tiemann, performing four originals and five gems by other composers.
Jazz pianist Julia Perminova recorded her latest album in 2022 at Bauer Studios in Ludwisburg, Germany. It is a musical diary of sorts, in which Perminova shares her thoughts, feelings and experiences on the signiﬁcance of freedom in one’s life.
Perminova explains that “Freedom is crucial for me to live and create. Without it I begin to wither, like a plant without water. Every track of the album carries a deep meaning for me, and they are all inextricably linked with the concept of Freedom.”
“Julia Perminova is a pianist to keep an ear out for — she has an inventive, colorful and poetic musical mind, and I look forward to hearing much more from her in the future.”Aaron Parks
