About Colorful Blue

Rami & Shlomy Alster – Colorful Blue

After years of playing together it seems that a unique sound is emerging, especially because of our strong connection to wind instruments and the variety of music we are influenced by. Our style moves from the familiar to the more complex and experimental pieces, while still maintaining our uniqueness in the more 'familiar' pieces.

Since 1995 we have founded many combos, some of them standard (saxophone, trombone, bass, drums, piano or guitar), some more unusual such as four saxes, trombone and drums or a horn sextet and drums.

In these bands we play original music or unique arrangements to standards – Blues, Be Bop, Hard Bop, Latin Jazz, Funky,
Ballads, Modal, a combination of Jewish and Arab music with Jazz, and experimental pieces which are less defined stylistically.
Our music is both instrumental and vocal.

Our Latin Jazz album "A New Beginning" is currently sold on cd baby: link . The album consists of pieces influenced by different Latin styles: Brazilian (Bossa Nova, Samba, Capoeira) Afro-Cuban (Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha) and more abstract modern Latin Jazz. Each piece has a different story, its own sound, and yet, there is also, an overall sound to the whole album, a distinct fingerprint to the whole project.
A very versatile album, pieces from it you can listen to on our website or on soundcloud.

Recently we have finished our second album named as our group "Colorful Blue". If one can label music, we would label it a Hard Bop album. It has traditional elements as well as more modern or innovative pieces. It is mostly original but does have a few standards with arrangements giving them a different flavor.

We are currently finishing our funky/fusion album "Rebelution", again an entirely new world very different from previous albums.
On our albums and performances we collaborate with Israel's finest musicians.

At WPSU I studied trombone with two of the leading jazz trombone players today: Conrad Herwig and Ed Neumeister, and participated in ensembles directed by drummer John Reily (Village Vanguard big-band) and pianist Harold Mabern.
