Handy with a horn

Super Jazz Ashdod Festival founder, artistic director and veteran jazz pianist Leonid Ptashka has been bringing major stars of the genre to the port town’s annual jazz bash since the event first surfaced in 2009. This year’s lineup also features one of the leading lights of the global scene, in the form of American saxophonist Craig Handy. The other offshore guests include fellow American guitarist Ron Jackson, high energy trumpeter-vocalist Joey Morant, Cuban percussionist Francisco Mel, Russian guitarist Tom Dorofeev and the ever-entertaining Carling Big Band from Sweden. There are also some local headliners on the roster, such as veteran bassist-singer Eli Magen, seasoned pianist-trumpeter Adi Renart and adventurous guitarist Jonathan Albalak.
