Augmented Reality is an intimate troupe of three gifted musicians whose roots trace back to opposite corners of the globe, only to converge in New York for an instrumental collaboration that fuses East, West, North, and South. Already getting rave reviews, Roy Assaf, Ronen Itzik, and Jorge Roeder combine their talents create music which elevates simple themes with melodies that instantly have listeners singing along. They embolden these themes with the spontaneity and dynamism of improvisation and with a contrast between percussion and melody that creates a remarkable time elasticity in a tune’s progression. The result is an unforgettable journey for pedestrian listeners and jazz aficionados alike.
