In November 2020, with the entire world locked down at home, Amir Bresler was itching to create. He’d spent years onstage, but never released a full solo album.
A friend’s invitation brought him to a rural village outside Tel Aviv, and the move lit a spark: Bresler set up shop in the village’s local auditorium named The House of Arches, and planned single-day sessions with different combinations of Tel Aviv’s finest, including keyboardist/ producer Rejoicer, Yemen Blues frontman Ravid Kahalani, bassist Gilad Abro, pianist Nomok and trumpeter Sefi Zisling. For nearly a week, crews of friends drove north and dug into psychedelic jazz and funk, all built upon Bresler’s polyrhythmic beats.
They captured spontaneous bursts of energy – free-form jams in the morning reigned into tight, mesmerising grooves in the afternoon. Those six compositions – each recorded live in one day – make up House of Arches, Amir Bresler’s first solo LP, out on Raw Tapes, with grooves as deep as the Mediterranean where it was conceived.
