I still remember when I first heard Oren Dashti play piano... He actually wasn't supposed to perform that night, as a friend brought us together for drinks at a jazz club. However, as some may know, "sit-ins" are not uncommon. Oren jumped on the piano and called the beautiful standard, "Someday My Prince Will Come". His interpretation of the tune was fresh, yet still stayed true to the original melody; something I like and appreciate. Fast-forward to now, Oren Dashti's playing has elevated even more.
For one of my concerts in 2017, I wanted to try something different with one of my original tunes. The outcome really surprised me, and brought a new element into the song's feel.
I am delighted to have Oren Dashti play one of my songs for my upcoming album!! His performance really gelled everything together, re-capturing the original live performance feeling!!
