Harvin (Jeff Beck, Air, Seal), Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy), Mor Biron (Berlin Philharmonic), Haggai Cohen Milo (Omer Klein
Trio), and Thomas Moked Blum (Fink, Patricia Kaas).
The Album was recorded over the course of four days at the legendary Emil Berliner Studios, Yael and her band played live in the same room which allowed them to musically communicate in the most intimate and free way. The result is a fascinating musical experience, adorably honest, heartfelt and direct.

where she studied with legends such as Sheila Jordan, Reggie Workman and Jane Ira Bloom.
