For her solo album Journey Back Home the NYC based Israeli artist Hadar Noiberg draws from an eclectic array of influences. Her masterful flute work weaves a path that beckons the listener for a glimpse of her native land. Backed by the remarkably solid rhythm section of Omer Avital (double bass) and Ziv Ravitz (drums/ percussion), Noiberg is free to explore her diverse roots. Journey Back Home is a wonderful jazz album that offers the listener an excursion from the melting pot of New York to the rich tradition of Israel.
