A tasteful feast from beginning to end, Destinations is a welcome relief from predictable sessions and ho-hum players; it also raises the bar for excellence. Hendelman’s musical travels have taken him from Alaska to New York, and Thailand to Israel inspiring his music along the way. In Destinations Hendelman takes listeners along on a voyage of musical discovery. “Destinations to me is not only about the places I have traveled to, but also about the journey of being a jazz musician
Israeli-born award-winning jazz pianist Tamir Hendelman has performed with Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole, James Moody, Tierney Sutton, Gladys Knight, John Pizzarelli and Quincy Jones, just to name a few. He has been a member of the Jeff Hamilton Trio and Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra since the early 2000s. “There are many fine pianists with impressive technique and swing who are convincing in a number of styles and play with real feeling. What increasingly distinguishes Hendelman is his gift for imaginative arranging. For one thing, he will compose an introduction that makes it difficult to predict what follows, but seems perfectly suited – even organic – once the tune begins.” (AllAboutJazz.com)
“Hendelman plays with a fullness of content and intensity, bringing new presentations of tunes. Not a fixed position player, Hendelman wears off the ivory over the entire keyboard,” said Harvey Barkan (LA Jazz Scene).”
