BioThird World Love began as a tour and recording for Fresh Sound Records in Barcelona. Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Omer Avital(Bass, Oud), Yonatan Avishai(Piano, vocals) and Daniel Freedman (drums) instantly became a band. Experimenting with different compositional forms Third World Love organically blends African, Middle Eastern, rock and jazz. Whether the show is in a concert hall or rock club the band draws the audience in to a poetic journey of rhythms, songs, dance and joyful celebration. Time Out February 2004. WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD (Forget what you thought about jazz) When were you lately at a jazz show where the audience was dancing like crazy? Most likely it never happened. Jazz fans tend to sit at most shows and clap politely after the solos. Third World Love (from here on, TWL) usually plays in front of a standing audience, and their music definitely makes you dance, and sweeps you away. I never in my life saw so many people moving to the sounds of such complicated melodies and harmonies. When the magic is created on stage, there is no choice but to listen, shake your butt and notice how your stupid smile is getting bigger and bigger every second. .. .......... ..........
