This album is dedicated to two great men in my
life: To the memory of my father, Herzl Gamlieli,
a man of nature, a geologist, an adventurer and,
most of all, a loving father and friend who is still
with me every step although he is no longer
with us.
And to my unbelievable grandfather, Haim
Giloh, who has been an outstanding role model
and has supported me forever and ever and
ever! I love you, Saba.
This debut CD is long overdue.
Keith Jarrett once said, “Music comes from
life, music doesn’t come from music”. During
the time between recording this album and
releasing it, I focused on life. Together with my
wife, Dania, we achieved the most important
and beautiful thing, of bringing our three
gorgeous boys, Noam, Yahel and Ohad, into
this world. They are the greatest source of love,
energy and inspiration I could dream of. I was
also honored to serve as head of the music
department at the Jerusalem Academy of Music
and Dance High School in Israel.


The story:
Music is recomposed every time it is played.
This recording is, first of all, the result of my

great friendships with my brothers Jorge Perez-
Albela and Kevin Harris. Our musical connection

started one afternoon in 2010 at a session at
Jorge’s home in Boston. We started playing a
standard and as soon as we finished it, I knew that,
for me, these are the guys! They were swingin’
like crazy, being playful and sensitive to every
note played. It was clear that we shared the same
musical values, so I thought to myself, if we are this
playful and having so much fun at a private session
with no audience, imagine what it could be like to
share this magic with others? I couldn’t wait!. I then
approached Gill Aharon from the Lilypad Jazz Club
in Cambridge, MA and shared with him my feelings
and that I was interested in a steady gig. I thank
Gill to this day for believing in me and accepting my
idea since it is rare that a band gets an opportunity
like this. I had such a belief in this trio that I knew
we would probably start with four people in the
audience but had no doubt that we could attract
a bigger audience from gig to gig. Thankfully, this
turned out to be true. We started with a handful of
people in the audience but after several months,
we packed the place. We also featured some
outstanding soloists such as the great trumpeter
Avishai Cohen, saxophonist and vocalist Stan
Stricklend, Saxophonist Marco Pignataro and
Drummer Richie Barshay, among others.
This recording is a testament to this trio’s organic
I am grateful for so many magical moments I have
shared with my beloved brothers, on and off stage,
and look forward to many more!

Thank you notes:
To Kevin Harris, Jorge Perez - Albela, Avishai
Cohen, Marco Pignataro and Richie Barshay
for their outstanding performance on this
It takes a village to raise a child. If I have one
talent, it is to find the right mentors.
Growing up with ADD and dyslexia, I had to
develop a sense to find the right people to
teach me.
I am so thankful that these outstanding
people accepted me into their classes and for
giving me so much of their love, wisdom and
knowledge. I will start with my first teacher, Raz
Sekeles, for introducing me to Jazz, believing
in me and making me believe that I can. Dr.
Michael Klinghoffer for helping me become the
bassist that I am, Dr. Bat Sheva Rubinstein
for giving me my musical ears and a deep
understanding of harmony and melody. To
Arnie Lawrence for pointing the way, Michael
Wolpe, Rafi Yungman, Offer Brayer and Steve
Peskoff for all the support.
In Boston, Danilo Perez, Dave Holland,
Charlie Banacos, Allan Chase, Don Palma,
Jerry Bergonzi, Ken Schaphorst, Rakalam
Bob Moses and Larry Scripp. To my musical
brothers, Bert Seager, Michel Reis,
Jason Yeager, Mike Gleichman, Doug Pet,
Nick Grondin, Tom Lew, Nadav Remez, Omri
Mor and Shai Maestro. All of them had a
concrete role in the development and shaping
of the music in this album.

A very special thank you to, Kate Yoder, and the
CCM community for supporting
this project.
Profound thanks to:
To the love of my life, my partner and best friend,
Dania, for supporting me in every step of the

way. To my mom, Michal, for fighting for my well-
being, believing in me and teaching me to listen

to myself. To my sister, Shahar, who is a blessing

in my life. To Tamara and Eitan, my parents-in-
law, for your love and continuous support. To

Zvi Katz, for your help in critical moments of
my development. To a special friend, Steffen
Berelowitz and the Berelowitz family, for adopting
us in Boston as a new family and supporting us
with love, care and joy. And finally thank you to
my grandparents, Yosef and Tsvia, who taught
me so much about life and exposed me to the
ancient, Jewish Kurdish culture and traditions.
