I can still remember the first time I heard Hadar Reiss play the trumpet. She walked into this Southern-Tel-Aviv rehearsal room , and had knocked me off my feet upon the first few phrases! As an alternative-Rock-influenced-singer/songwriter forming a band , It was my wish to embrace a rather unique Brass-section – consisted of Trombone ,Trumpet and Saxophone players.
With that said, Hadar Reiss most definitely stood out, showing her diversified abilities to in phrase captivatingly performed Solos, Rock-Jazz-Influenced parts, Whilst giving our mutual work a great deal of self-input , relentless as well as thorough home practice and last, but-never-ever-least, every aspect of her work comes with great seriousness and a big smile. After all she is indeed a virtuoso!
