Israeli jazz pianist Roy Assaf has already racked up some prestigious prizes, including an ASCAP Young Jazz Composer award and the America-Israel Cultural Foundation Prize for Young Israeli Musicians. With drummer Jake Goldbas and bassist Ravi Markovitz, the trio delivers fresh color to the world of music. Their 2014 debut album, Second Row Behind the Painter, is a smooth mix of original compositions and classics. They have performed at venues such as The Blue Note and the Rubin Museum of Art, and recently toured to the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and Finland. No matter what song or style they play, there are always elements of melody, emotions and groove in their music.
