    Each organ in the human body serves its own vital role, on its own indispensable to the functioning of the whole; but life only truly becomes miraculous when all of these components work together. On Living Organs, saxophonist/composer Shauli Einav debuts a new quartet that operates on the same synergistic principle. The album conjures a scintillatingly original sound from the chemistry of four distinctive individuals.

    In this band, each part is a vital one and has a very unique individual role,” Einav says. “I feel like we're four soloists playing together, and because of that I’m being fed ideas more than ever before.

    Beyond its more metaphorical meaning, Living Organs is a play on the concept of the jazz organ group, hinting at the fact that this is a more modern, evolving take on the form. The album represents a turn towards a more electric, groove-based approach for Einav, whose past releases have mined a more acoustic, swing-rooted vein. The eclectic and propulsive sound acknowledges that his love of jazz grew not in a vacuum, but amid an equal zeal for contemporary rock and pop music.

    I got my first Charlie Parker album when I was ten, but even before that I used to listen to a lot of Jamiroquai, Queen and David Bowie,” the saxophonist recalls. “My older brother and sister would bring home cassettes by Bodycount, Iron Maiden, Duran Duran or Tracy Chapman. The things that you hear at the age of eight or nine stick with you, so for this album I just wrote music that I wanted to hear. The most important thing for me is always to be honest to myself.

  • Chaque organe du corps humain remplit son propre rôle vital, indispensable à lui seul au fonctionnement de l'ensemble ; mais la vie ne devient vraiment miraculeuse que lorsque tous ces composants fonctionnent ensemble. Sur Living Organs, le saxophoniste/compositeur Shauli Einav lance un nouveau quartet qui fonctionne sur le même principe synergique. L'album évoque un son scintillant original de la chimie de quatre individus distincts.

    "Dans ce groupe, chaque partie est vitale et a un rôle individuel très unique", explique Einav. "J'ai l'impression que nous sommes quatre solistes jouant ensemble, et à cause de cela, je reçois des idées plus que jamais."

    Au-delà de son sens plus métaphorique, Living Organs est une pièce de théâtre sur le concept de groupe d'orgues de jazz, faisant allusion au fait qu'il s'agit d'une forme plus moderne et évolutive. L'album représente un virage vers une approche plus électrique et basée sur le groove pour Einav, dont les versions précédentes ont exploité une veine plus acoustique et plus swing. Le son éclectique et propulsif reconnaît que son amour du jazz n'a pas grandi dans le vide, mais au milieu d'un zèle égal pour la musique rock et pop contemporaine.

    "J'ai eu mon premier album de Charlie Parker quand j'avais dix ans, mais même avant cela, j'écoutais beaucoup de Jamiroquai, Queen et David Bowie", se souvient le saxophoniste. « Mon frère et ma sœur aînés ramenaient à la maison des cassettes de Bodycount, Iron Maiden, Duran Duran ou Tracy Chapman. Les choses que vous entendez à l'âge de huit ou neuf ans restent avec vous, alors pour cet album, j'ai juste écrit la musique que je voulais entendre. La chose la plus importante pour moi est de toujours être honnête avec moi-même.

“Shauli has put together a very interesting recording [It’s] challenging but accessible, [and] performed by a wonderful band of young and talented artists.”
- NEA Jazz Master Dave Liebman


Shauli Einav


Hailed by JazzTimes for his “agility and clean, clarion, powerful sound,” saxophonist and composer Shauli Einav is a wide-ranging musician whose artistry is rooted in a search for truth. That philosophy has guided him throughout a venturesome career, including collaborations with such leading jazz figures as Aaron Goldberg, David Liebman, Gilad Hekselman, Avishai Cohen, Johnathan Blake, Shai Maestro, and Tigran Hamasyan, among others. As noted by All About Jazz, “Shauli Einav is a remarkably complete musician, a virtuosic soloist with a lush sound on both soprano and tenor whose compositions are daring and deep.” Those facets, propelled by his deep-seeded quest to expression an ever-evolving personal truth through, combine to make Einav one of the most compelling and searching saxophonists in jazz today.
