The Alter Jazz Ensemble is a pioneering music project that fuses traditional Jewish prayer and song with jazz music, melding together disparate worlds to create an unusual musical offering. The project is an initiative of American-born and Australian-based hipster/hassid Rabbi Noam Sendor and produced by renowned Australian composer Adam Starr.
The ensemble released their debut album New Alter in December 2014, touring the UK (2014/15) and US (2015/2016), also playing around Australia. Led by Sendor, the outfit bring unique vocals, genuine and pure jazz tone to his own style of hazanut (traditional cantorial singing), which is combined with improvisation and beatboxing.
