-DeKeL BoR Trio live your dreams LOUDER....

“Dekel Bor and his band are the future of jazz" (Yossi Harsonsky,Maariv)

“Dekel Bor and his trio make some of the finest jazz that I have ever heard"

( Neil Feldman, publisher- NOB Magazine )

The Dekel Bor trio is a New York City based modern jazz group that is both dynamic and expressive. A diverse cultural collaboration, Dekel Bor, David Ruffels and Nadav Snir-Zelniker are combining the jazz traditions of small ensemble playing with modern world-music infusions. Seeking to incorporate melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic textures within an improvisational framework, the trio has developed a unique and personal interaction based on intensive listening and musical trust.

Consisting primarily of compositions written by Dekel Bor, the trio's original repetoire is open to constant expansion and revision through the evolution of its musicianship. Each member contributes an integral element to the ever-changing and forward moving arrangements.

Dekel Bor is a 24 year-old Guitarist-composer from Israel. In 2003 Dekel received the prestigious “Young Beacons In Jazz" award. He performed in major festivals with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra as well as with jazz legend Reggie Workman and Adam Nussbaum. Dekel endorses American-Archtop Guitars,Mesa Boogie and Acoustic Image Amps,Bag-End Speakers and Thomastk-Infeld Strings.

Bassist David Ruffels has performed and played with Joe Henderson,Michael Brecker, and Joshua Redman among many others.

Drummer Nadav Snir-Zelniker has performed with such musical giants as Jon Faddis, Dr. Todd Coolman,Arthur Lipner and the David Parsons Dance Company

The Dekel Bor trio has been performing consistently in venues such as concert halls, festivals and clubs throughout the East Coast. They have drawn the attention and praise of musicians and jazz fans and have recently begun working on the release of a major record debut with grammy award winning producer Robert Sadin (Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Gilberto Gil).

Dekel Bor and the Group

“ Dekel's Ryles show ...scale 1-10 was a 20...very creative and focused . You can't appreciate the magnitude of band until you see them in concert. They venture where few musicians are willing or able to go" (Brian Walkley, RYLES Jazz Club,Cambridge,MA)

“The Trio is one of the tightest and most interesting Jazz bands I have seen. The performances are powerfull and raw, the music is original & compelling. Dekel is, with-out a doubt, the most aggressive and talented Jazz guitarist I have ever witnessed." (Donald O'finn / Booking Agent & Manager Freedys Backroom)

“The quality of the music was outstanding. they're creating a truly remarkable resource for the community" (Trenton,NJ City Council)

“Your creative project is really excellent. I find it of very high quality. The three of you play together beautifully and the compositions really sing." (Eugene Uman,Vermont Jazz Center)

“They have it! ... Bor has found his unique style...uncompromising.." (Yediot U.S.A art section Michal Daniel)

“The Trio has begun to play at a level that very few young musicians achieve" (jane Ira Bloom)

“I find Dekel Bor to be not only very talented,but Extremely Creative and Gifted" (Buster Williams - Jazz Legend) “Dekel, your type of playing makes me think of giving sound to the image of a bird who lightly rests on the highest Branch, with full confidence, knowing its abillity to fly..." (Marsha Goldstien)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
