Dot Time Records is proud to announce the March 5, 2021 release of Stories , the newest recording
from renowned guitarist and composer Roni Ben-Hur. On his latest collaboration with some of the finest
musicians on the international jazz circuit, the jazz guitar virtuoso shares a fascinating collection of
Stories from his genre-busting 40-year multicultural musical journey. Joining Ben-Hur is the legendary
George Cables on piano, esteemed trumpeter Ingrid Jensen , the steadfast rhythm section with bassist
Harvie S and drummer Victor Lewis, and special guest vocalists Magos Herrera and Tamuz Nissim.
“ Recording Stories has been a unique and very fulfilling experience, allowing me to incorporate songs I loved since my childhood, and ones that speak to social issues that are important to me, with theexquisite mastery of the artists in this album. Each person on this recording brought their stories to mine, adding beauty and depth that was beyond my imagination, making it a tale I wanted to listen to again, and again. I feel very blessed to be able to share this with the world,” shared Ben-Hur.
Ben Hur’s story began in Dimona, a small, provincial desert town in Israel, where he was born in 1962. In Stories , Ben-Hur, who moved to New York in 1985, constructs a timeless lyrical bridge linking his early childhood memories to the world of today.
Roni Ben-Hur is a master in the world of straight-ahead jazz, but his unique style also reflects the Brazilian, Middle Eastern and African musical landscapes that are so much a part of his heritage. This album is a dazzling compilation of great Stories from that rich treasure chest that yearn to be heard again and again.
