Thank you Margaret Laing for donating the piano tuning!

The River is a collaborative project between Israeli-born alto saxophonist Tevet Sela and Canadian jazz pianist John Roney.

Each artist has a strong identity as a leader and musical visionary, and the combination of their efforts is even greater than the sum of its parts.

Through 10 original compositions, the duo explores the blending of musical cultures from the Middle East, Europe, and North America to create a sound that is truly unique. Klezmer ornamentations, North African rhythms, European Classical textures, Jazz improvisation and Groove all flow together effortlessly as this exciting duo navigates new uncharted musical waters. 

Their fearless improvisations and open-minded musicality make every note honest and spontaneous, engaging the listener at every bend and turn.  As The River flows, it connects together our distant lands and welcomes us all to revel in its strength and beauty.
