Talinka

Talinka defies boundaries between styles and genres. It is where folk, early music, jazz and tango merge into simplicity, harmony and warmth.  Talinka creates a new distinctive sound that explores the unique and diverse journyes of four British musicians: Jenny Bliss, a baroque virtuoso artist, Yaron Stavi, one of the leading bass players in Europe, Gilad Atzmon, an internationally acclaimed Jazz saxophonist with an affinity for ethnic sounds and his wife Tali, whose singing has been paired up with her theatrical career. The outcome of this musical journey is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities creates an amalgam of past and present, East and West. It creates a natural continuum between ethnic, jazz, tango and early music. It transcends beyond musical boundaries. It is all about music for the sake of music.

Tali Atzmon – Voice

Yaron Stavi – Double Bass

Jenny Bliss Bennett – Viola De Gamba, Violin, flute and voice

 Gilad Atzmon – Bass Clarinet, Accordion and Soprano Sax

REVIEWS

“Talinka – such an evocative name – wittily appropriate for this intimate set so sensitively arranged around Tali’s straight from the heart, true and soulful voice  .Since hearing Ms. Atzmon’s discrete contributions to records by Gilad and friends.  I’ve long wished she would make a record revealing her own deeply personal approach to music , and here ,at last, is that record.” Robert Wyatt

“Every now and again you come across a jazz album which dispenses with all the usual features and starts afresh: instrumentation, form, melody, harmony and soloing protocols are all reworked here with simplicity, depth and maturity.” Sarah Chaplin, London Jazz News

“Keening, remorseful music, but full of beauty.” Peter Jones, Bebop Spoken Here

“Everything a good album should be.”  Sammy Stein, Kind of Jazz Magazine

“There’s an airy spaciousness about Talinka’s music, a music that is never far from the taste of tears.”  Andy Robson, Jazzwise
