Open Sky

International jazz musicians come together and give this modern jazz trio an open and rich sound with strong Middle Eastern influences.

Formed by friends and collaborators Shay Salhov (saxophone), Jeff Denson (bass) and Ronen Itzik (drums), Open Sky is a new jazz trio that explores spontaneous musical territory featuring set harmonic structures and free improvisation.

Propulsive rhythms are the heartbeat of the music and the musicians are master improvisers of harmonic melodic invention.

The moss-draped oaks of the Sunshine State hold deep, dark secrets.
