Brand new Album "Connecting the Dots“, out since February 2019
The wonder of music is that it allows us to tap into a dimension where things are more connected thatn they may at first seem. Zohar Argov, Horace Silver, Rumi, Fairouz, an Italian neighborhood in NY and a city in Uzbekistan – these are just some of the people and places that have inspired this brand new album Connecting The Dots.
Guy Mintus is an Israeli born New York based pianist, composer & educator active in Jazz, World Music and contemporary scenes. His musical influences are borderless and bring together elements from Stride piano to Turkish Makams, Indian rhythms to Bach-styled conterpoint, Jewish melodies and American jazz standards that are seamlessly weaved together into his own signature style.
At 26, Guy's awards include the Prix du Public at the Montreux Jazz Festival’s solo piano competition as well as two of ASCAP’s “Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Awards”. Guy has collaborated with artists such as Jon Hendricks, Trilok Gurto, the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and has been commissioned to compose for the American Composers Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and the Israeli Chamber Orchestra, among others.
