Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Oran Etkin: Gathering Light

With clarinetist/bass clarinetist/saxophonist Oran Etkin, bassist Ben Allison, guitarist Gilad Hekselman, and drummer Rudy Royston

“Gathering Light is a gloriously global musical mélange that finds Etkin in good company, creating alternately gripping and grooving performances with some of the most distinct personalities on the scene… firm evidence that the world is Etkin's oyster, palette, and muse. This is global jazz done the right way.” –

Multi-instrumentalist Oran Etkin is known for digging deeply into the sounds of various eras and locations, reimagining them in his own voice. Influenced by Etkin’s cross-cultural musical collaborations, Gathering Light first came about after Etkin spent two years touring in Indonesia, Japan, China, Israel, Belgium, France, and Germany. The rich material featured in this project is inspired by the spontaneous musical exchanges Etkin experienced as well as traditional melodies and rhythms. For this Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola performance, Etkin brings some of the most distinctive and versatile musicians in contemporary jazz: bassist Ben Allison, guitarist Gilad Hekselman, and drummer Rudy Royston.
