Avram Fefer Trio 


December 22. For over 20 years, Avram Fefer has been one of the most active players in the avant-jazz sphere, working in Boston, Paris, and his current home of New York.

Also well documented are Fefer's numerous collaborations with musicians from North and Central Africa, which continue to shape his playing.
