BOP STOP at The Music Settlement says
Israeli born-New York based pianist and composer Guy Mintus will make his Cleveland debut with a solo show at BopStop as part of his Canadian-Mid Western Tour.

Guy, who recently won the 2nd prize+the audience’s choice at the Montreux Jazz Festival’s solo piano competition was described as a "brilliant musician, who melds a multicultural vision with the passion and fury of the jazz greats” (Tom Henry, Toledo Blade). While being deeply rooted in the Jazz and classical traditions, Guy is as avid scholar of mediterranean cultures often travels to perform and study with masters of the various musical traditions. With his combined knowledge he creates a true and organic synthesis between the musical styles in performances that “keep the entire hall listening with held breath” (Barka Fabianova, Full Moon Zine Magazine).

His passionate melodious compositions combine elements from Stride Piano to Ottoman Makams, Indian rhythms to Bach-styled counterpoint, Spanish Flamenco to Jewish melodies all weaved together in his own signature style. "Guy is mad scientist” stated Grammy winning pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, “none does it like him”.

The program will include original materials alongside re-imaginations of traditional songs from the mediterranean, jazz standards as well as real time-compositions created on the spot interactively with the audience.
