Notes Jazz In Israel

The ZOA House in heart of Tel Aviv on Friday afternoons is the base for an informal group that meets and plays jazz. There are 4 young men in the jazz group; Mel Keller on sax and clarinet, Alex Weisberg on bass, Danny Gottfried at the piano and Mel Lachman on drums. The narrator interviews the players about the growing popularity of the genre in the Country. There are 2 non-vocal jazz selections on this Vistas of Israel program:

1) Scrapple From The Apple is a modern jazz opus. 3:53 - 6:57

2) An unnamed piece. 9:08 - 11:06
