About this Event

Israeli pianist, composer, vocalist, and educator Guy Mintus has been playing George Gershwin’s catalogue since the age of 10. Now a celebrated jazz artist, he provides a fresh, modern, and very personal take on the music of the Jewish-American musical giant receiving international support from both critics and audiences alike. Relevant, multi-layered, and full of possibilities Gershwin’s music remains, the evening highlights how seamlessly Mintus—coming from a mixed heritage of Iraqi, Moroccan, and Polish Jews—throws groovy middle-eastern elements and meditative “prayer-like” moments into the swing and playfulness to dazzling effect.

“Guy Mintus doesn’t just cross the line, he obliterates it. His bold reimaginings… take listeners on a rocket ride to heights where they can see these tunes as if for the first time.” —DownBeat Magazine
