The members of multi-national Minsarah met in September 2000
while all three of them attended BerkleeCollege of Music in Boston,
Massachusetts. The three musicians developed an intense musical
connection, which produced an exceptionally unique, and personal
trio sound. Since that time they have been touring extensively
throughout Europe and the US. The trio attended the majority of the
big festivals such as the Berlin jazz festival, Paris JVC Jazz Festival,
Montreal Jazz Festival and many more. In the past year the trio
recorded a quartet album with the jazz legend Lee Konitz. They are
currently touring with the Lee Konitz + MinsarahQuartet.

The word Minsarah is Hebrew and means "prism". Like a prism
showing the colors in light, the trio goes for new sound colors and
new ideas in band playing. A team of densely interacting
improvisers, the three of them play with powerful and dramatic
intensity, fresh lyricism, a sense of melody that is all their own and a
great openness for improvisation and innovation. Their music
transports ballad moods never heard before while at other times it
provides structural experiments of high complexity. This is what the
press wrote on first listening to Minsarah: "A new discovery", "world-
class", "the miracle of Cologne", "a first class trio", "vivid expression
and strength".
