Ayelet Rose Gottlieb Sextet¹s Debut at the Jazz Standard
“A commanding vocalist” — New York Times
“The elegance in this music is juxtaposed against the rawness of its
sensuality” — Billboard
A.R.G. Sextet explores the balance between improvisation and the written
page. Though using traditional jazz group instrumentation, the band
challenges the assumed role of each of the instruments, particularly the
voice. They recently recorded a new CD anticipated to be released in 2008,
and will be playing a ³preview concert² at the world renowned Jazz Standard
this June. The Sextet’s repertoire features compositions and arrangements by
Ayelet Rose Gottlieb. She uses her own lyrics as well as poetry by Rumi and
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. among others. Arrangements include tunes by
Ornette Coleman and Bob Dylan.
June 9th, 7:30 & 9:30pm

“The stunning Gottlieb possesses a powerful voice, using it with authority,
soaring over the beautifully voiced chorus of four.”– JazzTimes
“Powerfully straddles jazz, cantorial and the avant-garde… Mayim Rabim
succeeds both musically and conceptually, one of the years finest vocal
releases”– All About Jazz
Jerusalem-born Ayelet Rose Gottlieb¹s song cycle is composed to erotic
poetry from the biblical Song of Songs. Directed by Franny Silverman with
video projections by Renate Aller, Mayim Rabim is a multi-sensory
performance that reveals the complexity of a young woman caught in the great
waters of love. The performance was chosen to represent Brooklyn in this
