I can’t wait to share with you the new album that Tomer Sasson has released. The title of the album is “Heartbeat,” and it is comprised of six outstanding jazz tunes where majority of the songs on the album were composed with Tomer’s personal inner circle of friends and family in mind.
Tomer Sasson collaborated with Oren Hardy who handled compositions and production, double bass Alon Benjamini who handled drums Recording and Tomer himself on the guitar. They got the idea to come up with this album when they were playing a show in Tel Aviv. After their first performance which was made up of jazz classics, they went for a break and during the break, Tomer took out his composition notebook and picked five or four songs where they played them right away, without practicing. They all therefore agreed to release these compositions, so a week later, they went to the studio to record them.
The inspiration for the title track, “Heartbeat,” comes from a previous relationship, and the song “Unknown” portrays Tomer’s perspective on the relationship that his father has with his father. On the other hand, “Kuba’s Song” is about a close buddy, while “New Day” investigates music and the varied feelings it might evoke. The song “Eb minor” is about having hope and optimism even when things are hopeless. You can feel the message in every note that is played, despite the fact that the songs do not contain any vocals.
The songs on the album are more concerned with composition and it has a style that is all its own, and adding new ideas into an already rich musical legacy. Elevate your mood by streaming the full album below.
