Show Catalogue
Iris & Ofer Portugaly Jazz Quartet
The show combines jazz classics – original arrangements of the great jazz singers´ repertoire, songs by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and others, as well as original arrangements of Israeli music staples (Cheek to Cheek, The Man I Love, Ma´arava Mikan, Haperakh Begani, Geshem).


´The more you listen, the fresher, more credible, catchier and more moving it sounds. Iris is an excellent singer and a surprising drummer, Ofer is a polished, knowledgeable keyboardist and an accomplished, self assured arranger, and together they create a new ilanguage in Israeli music. Even if you still have a problem with jazz, as an intellectual-academic musical genre, let yourselves be carried away by the duo´s songs, by their Hebrew, which meets head on music from far away, rather than bend to its rules… simply beautiful songs… highly recommended." Amos Oren, ´Yedioth Aharonot´.The show combines jazz classics – original arrangements of the great jazz singers´ repertoire, songs by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and others, as well as original arrangements of Israeli music staples ( Cheek to Cheek, The Man I Love, Ma´arava Mikan, Haperakh Begani, Geshem).
