Pablo Embon originally hails from Argentina, rich in its history of tango and Andean folk music, where he learned from famed classical guitarist Eduardo Isaac. Pablo played in several modern bands and as a single musician in his youth.
Later in life, Embon immigrated to Israel where its unique blend of klezmer, Hebrew and Middle Eastern music no doubt had an influence on the musician who at this point had already spent years creating and performing unique modern and alternative jazz compositions.
Embon started his music education at very young age. As a child he developed intuitive composition skills, adopting piano and guitar as his core musical instruments. Later on, he pursued advanced music education in the composition and harmonization fields and won recognitions in several public music contests in Argentina.
Once in Israel, Embon became an independant musician. He continued his education in music recording, production and orchestration, releasing nine music albums between 2004 and 2009, all including original composition and arrangements. These albums contain different music styles, such as alternative, smooth and fusion jazz, orchestral instrumentals and solo piano with some classical music influences.
With over 30 years of music experience, Pablo Embon has the advantage over other egregiously talented musicians in that he is highly accomplished on multiple instruments and has had the privilege of studying and composing in vastly different geographic sectors.
Experimental, yet very approachable, Argentina-born Pablo Embon’s Second Chances is a listenable blend of the best elements of straight-ahead jazz, classical, fusion and free jazz forms. That means thrilling runs on the acoustic piano, skidding throwback synthesizer, interesting polyrhythms and gutsy turns on the saxophone, often all within the confines of one track.
