    Exhaust: Assif Tsahar

    A fascinating encounter between three musicians working at different ends of the Israeli music scene – Assif Tsahar (tenor saxophone and mbira), Igor Krotogolov (electric bass) and Hagai Fershtman (drums). For more than two decades, Tsahar, one of the first free-jazz musicians in Israel, has performed and recorded with this style's best musicians – including William Parker, Rashied Ali, and Hamid Drake. Igor Krotogolov, who founded the ensembles Kruzenshtern I Parohod and the Toy Orchestra, is undoubtedly one of the most unique artists on the alternative music scene. The third side of this trio, the sought-after drummer Hagai Fershtman, works with a wide range of artists including Asaf Avidan, Riff Cohen and Avishai Cohen. The ensemble has released two albums under the label Auris Media, combining free improvisation and jazz with metal, punk, and ambient noise, expanding the limits of the jazz-saxophone-trio genre.
