Song of the Day: Sefi Zisling – Older & Wiser

Tel Aviv’s top trumpeter Sefi Zisling evokes the sound of 70s jazz-funk on the new release Welcome Sunset, including a brilliant new song Older & Wiser.

Sonic echoes of legends from the iconic era such as Roy Ayres, Gene Harris, Bobby Humphrey and Idris Muhammed can be heard, woven with the swagger instrumentation of Kool and the Gang. The opening song Older & Wiser is an adventurous experiment with abstract, jumpy melodies over afro-rhythms and the Prince-esque funk of Sexy M.F. Welcome Sunset also features an extended dub remix by Mahogani and Defected Records recruit Obas Nenor, who turns The Sky Sings – taken from Sefi’s sophomore album Expanse – into killer dance floor business.  

Talking about how the two original tracks (Older & Wiser and Welcome Sunset) were formed, Sefi says: After the release of Expanse, which was an album made in a very raw and live mindset, I wanted this release to have a tighter, more detailed, and punchier sound. A rule I set myself was to try and work every release with a different method, for my own creative growth and learning experience.



Listen to Sefi Zisling new single Older & Wiser, from his new EP Welcome Sunset:

Sefi Zisling first started playing the trumpet at the mere age of ten, soon after enrolling in the prestigious art school Thelma Yellin.  Performing in an array of bands since his early teens, Sefi has performed and recorded sessions with almost every key player of the jazz world in Israel. His debut album Beyond The Thing I Know, released on Tel Aviv’s leading collective Raw Tapes, propelled the trumpeter onto the world stage. Sefi then found his home on Tru Thoughts for his sophomore record Expanse, an album that captured the essence of the classic jazz session and transformed his role from instrumentalist to composer.
