In November 2020, with the entire world locked down at home, Amir Bresler was itching to create. He’d spent years on stage but never released a full solo album. A friend’s invitation brought him to a rural village outside Tel Aviv, and the move lit a spark: Bresler set up shop in the village’s local auditorium named ‘The House of Arches’ and planned single-day sessions with different combinations of Tel Aviv’s finest, including keyboardist/producer Rejoicer, Yemen Blues frontman Ravid Kahalani, bassist Gilad Abro, pianist Nomok, and trumpeter Sefi Zisling. For nearly a week, crews of friends drove north and dug into psychedelic jazz and funk, all built upon Bresler’s polyrhythmic beats. They captured spontaneous bursts of energy ‘ free-form jams in the morning reigned into tight, mesmerizing grooves in the afternoon.
Those six compositions ‘ each recorded live in one-day makeup House of Arches, Amir Bresler’s first solo LP, out March 9 on Raw Tapes, with grooves as deep as the Mediterranean where it was conceived.
