His live shows are pure joy, with the Israeli-born bassist bobbing, weaving, whooping and playing a rhythmic blur. HeΓÇÖs locked into his music with an intensity and purpose that is rare and beautiful. On Live At Smalls, we catch Avital and his quintet at one of New York CityΓÇÖs best clubs at presenting the next generation of jazz. Before talking about the music, weΓÇÖve got to address the bandΓÇöAvishai Cohen on trumpet, Jason Lindner on piano, Joel Frahm on tenor sax and Jonathan Blake on drums. Each of these artists is fantastic in his own right. Together, theyΓÇÖre on fire. Now, for the music. All eight tracks are Avital originals. They are stunning for their drive, beautiful horn lines and fine improvisation. ItΓÇÖs the whole package. ΓÇ£Theme For A Brighter FutureΓÇ¥ leads off the recording with a soulful groove. ΓÇ£Magic CarpetΓÇ¥ scorches the earth with stinging solos and interplay between Avital, Frahm and Cohen. AvitalΓÇÖs bass intro into ΓÇ£Anthem For LifeΓÇ¥ shows his deep understanding of soul musicΓÇöbe it Middle Eastern, classical, or the blues-driven American variety. And the closing number, ΓÇ£(ΓÇªJust Some) Small Time Shit,ΓÇ¥ leads you back around to a great groove and a laugh with the band singing the songΓÇÖs title. This is hard-driving jazz with a new soul for a new era.
