Israeli born pianist-composer Eyal Lovett creates a wide range of music. Although classically trained, he is deeply immersed in the jazz tradition, as well as in the music located in Israel and the Middle East. Eyal's latest album - "Tales From a Forbidden Land" was released to acclaim on November 2016 by the London based label Two Rivers Records and features the renowned guitar player Gilad Hekselman. Much of the music references Lovett's homeland, with nostalgia, longing, mystery. There are lovely, piquant ruminations, intimate, nuanced conversations. There is hope; there is disappointment. Lovett pens delicate, achingly beautiful melodies, and he includes some well-chosen covers—a handful of Israeli songs and the familiar "Days Of Wine And Rose
