"He's got Rhythm of every variety" " trickles of rhythm seeping into all the cracks and at regular intervals he changes the rhythm, pouring it out or stoppering it, turning its emphasis around, subdividing or refocusing it and making it follow the melody." -- Ben Ratliff New York Times
"Ari Hoenig is one of the most maniacally obsessive, spasmodic and musical drummers in jazz." -- Jazz Times
Possessed of an innate enquiring mind, Philadelphia-born drummer Ari Hoenig relentlessly explores the melodic possibilities of the drums. He has worked with a long and impressive list of musicians ranging from Joshua Redman to Mike Stern, Shirley Scott, and Richard Bona – they're all on Hoenig's CV. He released his latest album The Pauper And The Magician in 2016. The other members of the Ari Hoenig Trio are the highly talented Israeli musicians Nitai Hershkovits and Or Bareket. Pianist Hershkovits is equally at home in jazz as he is in classical music. His playing is elegant and tinged with melancholy. He has performed at major festivals like the Antibes Jazz Festival and Montreux. Bassist Bareket's career is one of the fastest moving on the New York jazz scene. His distinctive improvisation style reflects Mediterranean, South American and North African influences but is nonetheless always rooted in the traditions of American jazz.
