Eli Degibri quartet
With his incredible sense of phrasing, the Israeli saxophonist Eli Degibri very quickly earned the admiration of big names. Discovered at the age of nineteen by Herbie Hancock, who invited him to join his sextet, Eli Degibri toured the world for over two years with this formation.
After having spent time with some of the key figures on the New York scene, Eli Degibri is now wholly devoted to his career as a composer, leader and mentor. At the head of a brilliant quartet consisting of the young and talented musicians Gadi Lehavi, Eviatar Slivnik and Or Bareket, the saxophonist is back with the repertoire of his new album Cliff Hangin’
. In Juan as an ambassador representing the « Red Sea Jazz Festival » in Eilat, Degibri is all set to experience this thrill and pass it on to the audience.
