Calling All SpiritsAvram Fefer (Saxophone), Eric Revis (Bass), Igal Foni (Drums)Avram’s debut, and it’s impressive. As his later recordings for CIMP and Boxholder show, Avram is an intense and focused player whose playing leaves no doubt that it’s all about the music. This 1999 recording continues to hold its own beside his later work.

CIMPFest 2009 live in Villach, AustriaMichael Bisio, John Carlson, Dominic Duval, Avram Fefer, Ken Filiano, William Gagliardi, Stephen Gauci, Lou Grassi, Jimmy Halperin, David Hofstra, John O'Gallagher, Jay Rosen, Kenny Wessell AMMichael Bisio, Avram Fefer, Stephen Gauci, Jay RosenHere at last is the mate to CIMP 360. Fresh from recent gigs in Austria and New York, this power quartet wows everybody whenever they play. Michael Bisio’s compositions and driving force make great demands but Messrs. Fefer, Gauci, and Rosen have power and imagination in reserve. Meaty music for the hungry and discriminating listener. CIMP 360: Circle ThisMichael Bisio, Avram Fefer, Stephen Gauci, Jay RosenHere's a powerful listening experience that combines the distinct and intricate compositions of Mike Bisio with spot-on execution and brilliant solo statements from the individual band members. There's plenty of meat here for the mind and body from this large quartet. Arguably, Mike Bisio's most powerful work to date—and that's saying a lot. SanctuaryBobby Few, Hilliard Greene, Newman Taylor Baker, Avram FeferMessrs. Few and Fefer have been collaborating since the mid 1990's but this is the first time they have recorded in Quartet and the results are strong. As Avram Fefer writes, "…a great couple days… a great piano… stimulating company." Bobby Few has been on the scene since his Ayler days of the 1960's and he represents some of the best of the classic Free period. Avram Fefer began to make a name for himself among musicians in the 1990's; he represents the rich future of this music. Here is a finished work for the discriminate and mature listener. Recorded May 7, 2005. Painting Breath, Stoking FireMichael Bisio, Avram FeferAvram Fefer constructed this 12-part suite and the duet offers up a full canvas of music as it pushes and keeps everything inventive & musical and the listener's interest & attention. A small group but full listening. Recorded January 18, 2005.
ConnectionsMichael Bisio, Avram Fefer, Stephen Gauci, Jay RosenMichael Bisio, the highly respected Pacific West Coast bassist/composer, put together these compositions specifically for this reed and rhythm quartet. Wonderful music which contains the composition "Basic Deconstruction"?a piece that captures an event we believe is unique in recording history. That's a teaser to get you to listen. That aside, this music stands on its own. Recorded January 17 & 18, 2005. Shades of the MuseAvram Fefer, Ken Filiano, Thomas Ulrich, Jay RosenIt's been a couple of years since Avram Fefer (San Francisco, CA 1964) was last in The Spirit Room but it didn't take long before he was engaging me about another project. While this was being conceived and coordinated, Avram continued other musical activities including his duo association with pianist Bobby Few, an ambient-electric groove quartet called Squelch, an on-going trio collaboration ... Lucille's Gemini DreamAvram Fefer, Steve Swell, Wilber Morris, Igal FoniFollowing up his trio's well received debut recording on Cadence Jazz Records, reedman Avram Fefer brings the dynamic trombone of Steve Swell into the mix and the quartet addresses 7 original compositions, including the title track, a particularly evocative and lyrical ballad. Interplay, composition, depth, and complexity all propel this to a dynamic listen. Recorded Jan. 11 & 12, 2001
