Ubuntu Music presents Until Now Album Launch Tour

Ron Magril - Guitar

Yonatan Rilkes - Piano

Oren Hardy - Bass

Yonatan Rosen - Drums

“You can’t help but respect Magril for his classic diction and clarity of tone. This is a man whose art does the talking, not his pedal rack.” Jazzwise Magazine (July 2022)

“This record sounds like it could have been recorded in the mid-50s or 60s but still comes over as fresh and contemporary…and it swings. Magril is a fine player with a warm classic jazz guitar tone and an ear for a strong melody” London Jazz News

“The young guitarist and composer's debut album managed to recreate the sound of Jazz from the 50s and 60s while adding it a modern interpretation. Melodic and pleasant to the ear but does not give up on complexity and depth with melodies and arrangements.“ Ha’aretz - Israel

This will be a celebration of Ron Magril’s debut album, Until Now, on the Ubuntu Music record label.

Ron is widely recognized as one of Israel’s leading Jazz guitarists, best known for his honest, straight-ahead, contemporary hard-bop style. His influences include Wes Montgomery, Joe Henderson, Grant Green, Mccoy Tyner and Sonny Rollins. Ron released Until Now on Ubuntu Music which earned excellent reviews from the British and Israeli press, including Jazzwise Magazine and London Jazz News, amongst a number of others.

“The young guitarist and composer's debut album managed to recreate the sound of Jazz from the 50s and 60s while adding it a modern interpretation. Melodic and pleasant to the ear but does not give up on complexity and depth with melodies and arrangements.“ Ha’aretz - Israel

“This is one of the best albums I have heard. “ Columbus – Israel
