Guitarist and composer, Albare was born in Morocco and grew up in Israel and France. Although he joined at age 8 the MusicConservatory in his hometown in Israel for 2 years, his musical developmentwascompletely self-taught. These days, as Albare has lost his central vision faculties due to a genetic illness,his playing is completely by ear.

In 1972 Albare discovered the sound of Jobim while watching MarcelCamus’s cult film, Orpheus Negro. The haunting melodies and unique compositionsleft a profound impression on the young guitarist and inspired Albare tostudyand play the melodic style for which he is now known for. 1993 Albare launchedhis first album, Acid Love which was a smash hit #1 on the JJJ radio playlist.

Albare Plays Jobim is his 6th collaboration with Phil Turcio, 5th with Joe Chindamo. It is his second collaboration with Antonio Sanchez andfirst with Ricardo Rodriguez.

Albare says: “As Jobim was such an influence in my playing, I feel this album is overdueand I am now ready to express the intense beauty ofthese melodies to my own satisfaction.”
