"Herman has given new meaning
to one of the greatest anthems in the history of rock."
The Bing Studio cabaret will host the U.S. debut tour of Uriel Herman, a 29-year-old classically-trained pianist and composer who operates on the seam between jazz, rock, and grunge with influences of Israeli sound. Over the past two years, Herman has wandered the world on a journey of discovery with his quartet: Avri Borochov (contrabass), Uriel Weinberger (wood wind) and Haim Peskoff (drums). Their newest album features arrangements of songs by Nirvana and Radiohead, poems set to new melodies, and original music that has won international praise.
This program is generously supported by Stephanie and Fred Harman and by the Koret Foundation. The Koret Jazz Project is a multiyear initiative to support, expand, and celebrate the role of jazz in the artistic and educational programming of Stanford Live. Travel support for the Uriel Herman Quartet is provided by the Consulate General of Israel.
