Shauli Einav, a saxophonist, was called a “blowing bundle virtuosity.” (Jazz Inside Magazine NYC). His latest album Opus One (Plus Loin Music), was called a “Smartly performed, swinging and evocative” by DownBeat Magazine. After seven years of playing in NYC’s jazz scene, Shauli Einav moved to Paris. He played with many of the most prominent jazz musicians today, including: Aaron Goldberg and Don Friedman. His extensive experience in NYC’s clubs led to the creation of his Plus Loin Music debut album, “Opus One”, which was highly praised by jazz critics (JazzTimes), “fresh and original voice” (“Opus One”), “with his expressive trombone, imaginative pen, Einav already sets himself apart” (All About Jazz NY). After the release, Einav was invited on major stages including Sudtirol Jazzfest and Rochester Jazzfest as well as Red Sea Jazzfest and Enjoy Jazzfest. Shauli Einav was raised in Israel. He started playing the violin when he was four years old. At thirteen, he switched to the piano and began playing with various Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem-based bands. Arnie Lawrence, an American jazz saxophonist who traveled to Israel to promote peace between Jews and Arabs through the use of music, discovered Einav in 1998. Ben Webster mentored Mr Lawrence, who was himself the link between Jerusalem and Lawrence.
