CROSSING the Red Sea is the debut album of 22-year-old Israeli pianist and composer Eden Giat, a promising new talent in the contemporary jazz scene.
Born into a musical family, Giat says that “from an early age, I listened with my dad to jazz, soul and funk music”.
Inspired by his father, Doron Giat, an accomplished drummer, he started playing and improvising with drums and percussion instruments from the age of two.
At five, he asked his parents to study the piano and began taking classical piano lessons.
Most of Giat’s piano lessons were under the guidance of Maxim Steinberg, a teacher who awakened his passion and drove him to practice hard and understand classical composers’ work more deeply. He also studied jazz piano and harmony with pianist Tamir Miller.
