Through his music, Brooklyn based pianist and composer Daniel Meronawakens listeners' deepest desires and feelings. Born in Israel to a family of Egyptian and Syrian descent, Meron integrates his love for improvisation into original compositions that are both sophisticated and lyrical, rich with influences from Jazz, Middle Eastern and Latin American music. Meron’s multiple records have gained rave reviews from music critics and radio stations around the world.   For his upcoming record entitled Pendulum (2024 Pinch Records), Daniel has gathered some of New York’s most innovative and distinguished jazz musicians: Drummer Mark Whitfield Jr. (Kenny Garrett, Kurt Rosenwinkle), bassist Tamir Shmerling (Terri Lyne Carrington, Kevin Eubanks), flutist Itai Kriss (Pedrito Martinez, Avishai Cohen) and tenorist Jonathan Greenstein (Omer Avital, Itamar Borochov). Having performed together over the past year, the band further explores that elusive and magical balance between the power of clarity and the excitement of spontaneity. Listening to Meron’s enchanting compositions played by such heavy-weight jazz improvisers provides a captivating experience both live and on the record.   Over the last decade, Meron has established himself as a prominent figure in the New York jazz scene, performing at venues such as Soho House, Mezzrow and the Museum of Natural History, playing the Jacksonville Jazz Festival, Costa Rica Jazz Festival, and touring Canada, Europe, and Israel. Daniel graduated Berklee College of Music, where he was the winner of multiple scholarships and awards, and studied with masters such as Danilo Perez, Hal Crook and Joe Lovano. Along with his activities as a bandleader, Daniel continues to record and perform with multiple bands such as Electric Pool, Bunnicula, and the Arnan Raz Band.
