Ancient cultures and jazz pioneers inspire the graphic scores, vibrant grooves and improvisations. That is Ziv Taubenfeld's Full Sun!
Full Sun was founded by Ziv Taubenfeld with Amsterdam’s improvised music scene as its point of departure. Stories of ancient Natufians and modern culture beings resonate in its improvisations and compositions. The ensemble translates graphic scores into melodies, conduction, grooves and dedications to influential jazz artists John Tchicai, Jemeel Moondoc and Sunny Murray.
Ziv Taubenfeld, born in Karmiel, Israel, started playing the clarinet at age 11. At the local conservatory he discovered the bass clarinet, which soon became Ziv’s main focus. His interest in improvised music grew after meeting the influential saxophonist Albert Beger, who opened up a path that eventually led to further studies of the bass clarinet with Michael Moore in The Netherlands.
