New release : Yaron Herman / Alma


Jazz pianist from Israel, Yaron Herman The first release after moving from Blue Note to Naive. An introspective piano solo work that challenges "improvisation".


Paris-based Israeli jazz pianist Yaron Hellman's first release after moving from Blue Note to Naïve. His 11th album and his first ambitious work with the theme of "improvisation".


Yaron Hellman has a unique career, having given up playing basketball, which he had devoted himself to, after an injury at the age of 16, and starting playing the piano. At the age of 19, he entered Berklee College of Music, but dropped out after two months. On his way back to Israel, he jumped into a jazz club in Paris and became a hot topic.


In 2009, he made his debut in Japan with his album "Yaron Hermann Debut", gained popularity for his playing that followed the flow of Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau, and released albums under his own name, mainly from Blue Note Label. This work will be the first release after signing with Naïve.
