Tal Arditi
Open 24/7

Israeli guitarist Tal Arditi is considered as one of the most aspiring protagonists in Berlin Jazz-scene. Arditi graduated in 2016 with a Jazz Diploma at the prestigious Rimon School of Music in Ramat Hasharon, near Tel Aviv. “I finished school and university when I was 18,” he recalls “just when my parents moved to a small village in Switzerland and they invited me to come with them. I was in Switzerland for a week, felt it wasn’t right for me, nice place with 300 people but very quiet. I’d been in Berlin a few years previously. I really liked the vibe. I packed up my stuff and went to the big city full of people from all over the world.. I had a feeling I’d never felt before.” Once in Berlin Arditi’s virtuoso talent as a guitarist was soon recognised. He was invited to play at the A-Trane jazz club, where he recorded his début album Portrait. Arditi composed all of the tracks on the new album Colors (BERTHOLD records). Together with Lukas Traxel on double bass and Tobias Backhaus on drums, a rich, original sound has been created that blends jazz, rock, classical and Brazilian accents. “I try to compose every day, it’s something I do, like eating, drinking, practising. I have maybe 500 ideas, skits, that I’ve recorded on my phone. I revisit and develop them and get new ideas”, Arditi describes his approach. “I’ve been influenced by Jimmy Page, John Scofield, Pat Metheny and Toninho Horta,” explains Arditi “but I don’t listen to other guitarists in a jazz context, rather to instrumentalists such as Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, and Brad Mehldau.” Arditi regularly performs at leading jazz clubs as well as the Umbria Jazz Festival, Xjazz Festival, Red Sea Jazz Festival, Fusion Festival and Open Air Keintal. In 2018 he was chosen to participate in the “Betty Carter Jazz Ahead” in Washington DC. Tal Arditi has been highly regarded in recent press reviews: “A lot can be expected from this young musician” (JazzThing) “Being just 22 years old, Arditi posesses an astonishing musical maturity. Furthermore, he surprises listeners as inventive composer with unique acoustic colours. Altogether an exciting and ambitious record by a young and aspiring guitarist.” (Gitarre & Bass Magazin)
