From Darkness sees the Israeli composer, bassist and singer go back to the very core of his musical idiom and activity, but with Avishai, what may seem as a return to the basics always brings the promise of a new beginning. From Darkness once again opens an essential gateway into a new creative and expressive dimension. It is the first time since Gently Disturbed that I have the feeling I am reaching a new, fresh and incredibly substantial form with the trio. A belief reinforced by two outstanding partners, pianist Nitai Hershkovits and drummer Daniel Dor. Both Nitai and Daniel take my music to places and perspectives that I had never suspected it would go and I couldn´t dream of anything better. Avishai goes on to describe this chemistry between them as; Here, three becomes one. In Leonard Cohen´s song Anthem, he wrote these penetrating lines; There is a crack in everything. That´s how the light gets in. It is through these majestic flaws, carved by humans and musicianship, that From Darkness let´s the light radiate from an art that, more than ever, can legitimately claim to reach the truth of the human soul.
