Assaf Kehati

ASSAF KEHATI: Jazz guitarist and composer Assaf Kehati arrived to the USA in 2007 and after a short time he has made waves in the jazz scene by working with such names as George Garzone, Eli Degibri, Anat Cohen, Ferenc Nemeth, Donny McCaslin, Seamus Blake and legendary drummers Victor Lewis (Woody Shaw, Stan Getz) and Billy Hart (Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery). Mr. Kehati has performed at some of the world’s leading venues as Blue Note, NYC; Washington D.C. Jazz Festival; MuzEnergo Jazz Festival, Russia; New England Cable News, Tel Aviv Museum, Barranquilla Jazz Festival, Colombia; Bansko Jazz Festival; Bulgaria, Nisville Jazz Festival; Serbia, and Toronto Jazz Festival. THE MUSIC: As a leader, Mr. Kehati has recorded three CDs that have received numerous rave reviews – A View From My Window (2010) and Flowers and Other Stories (2011) and his latest album, Naked (2014). His compositions are inspired by the daily and trivial, yet wonderful and significant experiences of life: from a winter, snow-laden view of Fenway Park from his apartment porch (A View From My Window), to the mundane but satisfying life of a snail (Sunshine Berale), to a girl seeking love in a land beyond the oceans (The Snow and the Sun), and to a story about the universal character, Mr. Mario that travels the world like a gypsy to places like Africa, the Middle East and the Pyramids in Egypt (Mr.Mario). The third album by Mr. Kehati, “NAKED”, was released in September 2014. Critics say about Assaf's third album: "Easily one of the best for 2014". Brent Black | Bop-N-Jazz "Extraordinary". John Watson | Jazz Camera UK "New form of jazz". Doug Perkins | Jazz Guitar Society "New level of musical directness and comprehensibility". Dan Bilawsky | All About Jazz "Exceedingly captivating".

Assaf Kehati's “Chromaticism” is a master class designed to show his personal methodology he developed to create jazz lines using chromatic notes. Kehati knew from early on in his development that he needed to get chromatics into his improvisations, but was unsure how to do it. “Chromaticism” shows you the personal concepts that he came up with to generate this naturally into his playing. He illustrates his principles through a series of exercises where he shows you how to create your own lines from his principles, and improvises cool licks that you can learn as well. Assaf has played with the likes of Anat Cohen, Seamus Blake, Victor Lewis and Billy Hart, and lives in New York City, and regularly plays all over the world.
