Tal Gamlieli Trio (ISR)


Deeply satisfying set through simple means: clear verse-chorus song structures, beautiful melodies, bedrock grooves, and imaginative improvisations.

Tal’s organic trio has been touring the world and selling out venues since 2014. Some notable venues include, Small’s Jazz Club (NYC), the 2017 International Music Showcase in Israel, Love Supreme Jazz Festival (UK), Pizza Express (London) the Panama Jazz Festival, The Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, The Bansko Jazz Festival, The S.P.A.C.E club in Chicago and the Lilypad Jazz Club in Boston.

Some of Tal’s main inspirations include artists such as Charlie Haden, Antonio Carlos Jobim, bassist Avishai Cohen and Chet Baker.

Tal’s debut album “DANIA” featuring trumpeter Avishai Cohen was released in July of 2017. In December 2017, Tal’s trio recorded a new CD named “Change of Heart” together with Saxophonist Dayna Stephens.
