"Yaron is a wonderful saxophonist, a part of the next generation of Jazz." Dan Karcher / WBGO 98.3 FM
For a long time modern jazz has been misrepresented to the public as music for musicians. Noted for his fresh approach to jazz, saxophonist and composer Yaron Elyashiv stays true to tradition as he keeps looking forward into the future.
Originally from Israel, Mr. Elyashiv has already been making a name for himself after only two years in New York, leading his groups at the legendary Minton's Playhouse, Silver Spring Jazz Festival, and a live radio broadcast at the WBGO studios in Newark. Some of the clubs he performed include Smalls, Cleopatra’s Needle, Swing 46, Saint Nick's Pub, Sweet Rhythm, Fat Cat, Jules Bistro, as well as The CUNY Jazz Festival. Mr. Elyashiv has performed as a leader and a sideman with great musicians such as Ugonna Okegwo, Andrei Ryabov, Daniela Shaechter, Ruslan Khain, Tommy James, Bertha Hope, Satoshi Inoue, Kengo Nakamura, Myrna Lake, Dmitri Kolesnik, Noah Haidu, Phil Stewart, Ari Roland, Sacha Perry, Will Terril and Richard Clements.
In 2007, Mr. Elyashiv was invited to record with veteran jazz singer, Myrna Lake, on her latest album Yesterdays. Just a few months later he released his debut album as a leader entitled I Remember You, for Jazzing Music. The album has been praised by Edward Blanco of eJazzNews.com as “a sparkling musical statement,” hailing his performance as “outstanding.” Larry Taylor of JazzReview.com adds, “His soloing and improvisational skills bring to mind legendary greats Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins.” Anchor Dan Karcher of WBGO radio station sums it up, "Yaron is a wonderful saxophonist, a part of the next generation of Jazz."

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
Let's be audacious, my friends!
