All About Jazz

 

The Guy Mintus Trio brings together a multicultural vision with a highly spontaneous improvisational approach. Greek Zeibekiko meets late Coltrane inspired expressionism. Gypsy Turkish folk meets the American Blues. Israeli pop songs and imaginative originals all come into play with a "colorful and highly dynamic sound that manages to stay cohesive, noble & mature” (YosMusic Blog). 

 

The leader of the group, Israeli pianist and composer Guy Mintus, coming from a mixed heritage of Iraqi, Moroccan & Polish Jews, is a true citizen of the world. He has been NY based for the past five years while constantly on the go having recently presented his music in Brazil, India, Turkey, Europe, the US, and Canada.

 

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.
