Kobi Arad (Internationally Acclaimed pianist - composer / Stevie Wonder Collaborator) is the first musician to receive Doctorate in the field of Third Stream / Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. A Grammy Awards voting member - he recently won the Holywood Music in Media Awards for Best Jazz (Sketches of Monk); Independent Music Awards for Jazz Instrumental Album (Segments) & Global Music Awards (Silver Medal) for World Music (Makams - Places).


'Devotion' - inspired by Keith Jarrett's adventurous Improvisations of the 70's - is  a Jazz piano solo composition. It utilizes a compositional system invented and coined by Arad, named 'Anchor Lines.' Here, a unitary melodic / harmonic Segment unfolds, through improvisation, into a full-blown composition.


Arad uses modal and melodic worlds, as well as middle Eastern makams as inspiration, turning them into building blocks and bridges towards an independent and fresh harmonic language.


"Wonderful Artist! You've Created an Harmonic Language All Your Own!"


- Chick Corea
