**Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**
As a young musician in Tel Aviv, Yotam Silberstein was quickly recognized as a prodigy and was invited to perform with many of the nation's top musicians. At 21, he performed at Italy's renowned Umbria Jazz Festival, released a critically acclaimed debut album and set out on an extensive tour of Europe.
Yotam has earned his place among the jazz elite by collaborating with such luminaries as James Moody, The Heath Brothers, Roy Hargrove, George Coleman, David Sanborn, Marcus Miller, Paquito D'rivera, Christian McBride, John Patitucci, and many others.
This versatile guitarist's wheelhouse runs the sonic spectrum, including Brazilian, world music, blues and bebop. Silberstein's showmanship wowed the Kennedy Center's 2011 production, "Ella!" which featured Dee Dee Bridgewater, Al Jarreau, Dr. Billy Taylor and Janis Siegel. His performance earned him a return invitation for a special appearance at the KC Jazz Club. In Addition Yotam has applied his talent to composing music for film and in 2015 he received the Sundance Time Warner award for film scoring.
Yotam Silberstein has toured as a leader in major clubs and jazz festivals in Europe, Japan, South America, Asia and the US and has received high praise for his performances. Having performed with the world's premier talent, Yotam has honed his craft with precision, finesse and the innate artistic touch. Both the critics and his fans await the release of his new album "The Village" on Jazz & People in January . DownBeat magazine calls this "his most fully realized recording to date," and says that Yotam "burns brightly alongside colleagues Goldberg, Rogers and Hutchinson."

From 1984 until 1994, Maucha performed all over the world with legendary composer Antonio Carlos Jobim and that's how she ended up in New York, where she has been living since 1987.
