“The stunning Gottlieb possesses a powerful voice”  ~Harvey Siders, JazzTimes

 “As with the music of Haydn, Mozart or Duke Ellington, it is easy to get caught up in the surface beauty of a work and ignore the tremendous craft that goes into it. While Gottlieb is primarily known as a jazz artist, composer and vocalist, her music incorporates elements of Middle-Eastern musical styles, classical composition and post-Sgt. Pepper pop music in a comfortable fusion.”  ~Daniel Scheide, AJL


Jerusalem-born musician Ayelet Rose Gottlieb draws on jazz, Middle-Eastern, and Jewish musical influences to forge an exhilaratingly eclectic sound. At once cutting-edge and rooted in tradition, her vibrant compositions are shape-shifting mélanges of textures and rhythms. A frequent collaborator of forward-thinking artists like composer John Zorn, pianist Anat Fort, and the ETHEL string quartet, Gottlieb performs both original works and covers that she reimagines via her one-of-a-kind sensibility.
