Guy Mintus Trio

The Guy Mintus Trio started with the need to create a musical home in which different identities and influences can co-exist and come together as a unique unified voice. The electricity and kinetic listening in the group are well-felt and has been described as “keeping the entire hall with held breath” (Barka Fabianova, Full Moon Zine Magazine). The trio’s debut record has been selected as DownBeat Magazine’s Editor’s Pick and led to performances of the trio at NY’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, Winter JazzFest and the Montreal Jazz Festival.

The group’s sophomore recording, Connecting the Dots, has been recently released on the french label jazz Family and it bringing together Horace Silver and Zohar Argov, Barbara Streisand and Fairouz, a neighborhood in NY’s Soho and the Sufi poet Jalal Uddin Muhammed Rumi. The album includes guest appearances by Israeli vocalist Sivan Arbel and saxophone legend Dave Liebman (Miles Davis, Elvin Jones). In 2019, the trio will give its debut shows in Turkey and Kazakhstan and a European tour in celebration of the new album.
