Dekel Bor Trio featuring Francois Moutin live Wed. Dec. 13th at Smalls

The Dekel Bor trio is one one of the most prominent and visible groups of the New-York jazz scene performing an average of 150-200 concerts a year to enthusiastic audiences. At a time where forward-looking,dedicated working jazz bands are rare, the Dekel Bor Trio is pushing the envelope of modern jazz. In the past 5 years the group has toured across the US to critical acclaim performing at top festivals, clubs and colleges during which they have drawn the attention of multi grammy- winning producer Robert Sadin (Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Gilberto Gil), known for his celebrated work with Wayne Shorter. Mr. Sadin went on to produce the group's first demo CD - “EMUNA”.
The group is now preparing for a US and european CD release tour in the Spring of 2007 which will find them collaborating with such jazz legends as Fred Hersch, Kenny Wheeler, Tom Harrell among many others.
