With guitarist Yotam Silberstein, pianist and accordionist Vitor Gonçalves, bassist Jorge Roeder, and percussionists Rogerio Bocatto and Keita Ogawa Live webcast and artist interview with WBGO host Rhonda Hamilton will begin at 7:15pm EST on jazz.org/live. WBGO is proud to partner once again with Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on Monday Nights with WBGO. The series features talented new artists as well as groups from some of the area's great college jazz programs. Each performance is hosted by WBGO announcer Rhonda Hamilton. Tel Aviv-born guitarist Yotam Silberstein had already won the coveted “Israeli Jazz Player of The Year” title at the age of 21. Soon after, he performed at Italy’s renowned Umbria Jazz Festival, released a critically-acclaimed debut album, and set out on an extensive tour of Europe and the Middle East. Upon receiving a scholarship to attend The New School in 2005, Silberstein moved to New York City, where he has released a second outstanding album and performed with such luminaries as James Moody, The Heath Brothers, and Paquito D’Rivera. It’s notoriously challenging for a jazz guitarist to climb the ranks like Silberstein, and it speaks to a high and multifaceted level of artistry to earn such acclaim at this speed. Don’t miss his anticipated return to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola!
