Gilad Ronen's debut album, Fractions of Light, is an exquisite reflection of the artist divers inspirations. While interweaving Middle Eastern colors, American neo-classical composition (reminiscent of Samuel Baeber's Addagio for strings), highly organic grooves and electric soundscapes, the coalescence of styles forms a whimsical adventure of surprising beauty.
Ronen is a master saxophonist and flutist who has produced a recording that features himself with orchestra and his musical execution impeccable.
While these works are not jazz per se, any jazz pundit would certainly appreciate the enchantment that Ronen's story, Fractions of light, brings forth. ~ Gary Levitt
