His big band is special in that, in addition to five reeds and a rhythm section, it has four, rather than eight, brass. “This combination of instruments gives the band the flexibility of a small group along with the power of a big band.” His 14-piece band is filled with superior soloists who blend together effortlessly to achieve an identifiable group sound. But most impressive is Eyal’s writing, which often voices the horns in inspired ways. He integrates individual lyrical lines for the musicians and harmonizes the horns in unique combinations, mixing together the different sections to create colorful and special sounds that are filled with surprises.
