"Baritone saxist Eden Bareket creates a rich post bop trio with Or Bareket/b and Felix Lecaros/dr on this nine song disc of originals. He’s got a big, fat and meaty sound, swooping into subtone territory when he digs deep with the bass on “Night Creatures” and creating a thick London Fog on “Escaping the Moment” and bel canto opening solo intro. His 5/4 dance on “Birds” is a Serengeti stampede and his growl for “Baccatum” is a roaring lion with his pads clip clopping to Lecaros’ drum pattern on “Children’s Play.” A rich and warm “Lost Melody” features his breathy bass clarinet before he closes with a staccato’d attack on “You’re Wrong.” Heavyweight punches with a TKO."

"There are plenty of rapid, skittering, minimalist moments on Night, young baritone saxophonist Eden Bareket's shadowy sophomore effort. In a smoky, late-night jam, with the moon hovering over the Brooklyn Bridge, Bareket runs the range of his instrument on eight lean and feisty originals and Matti Caspi's "Lost Melody."
Bareket's solos are dark, sonorous, slippery concoctions as they wind their rubbery way, banking tight corners and wide turns, while his sinewy rhythm section of bassist brother Or Bareket and drummer Felix Lecaros create a forceful, nocturnal magnetism around him. "Birds" opens Night with a honking fanfare, the trio immediately deploying the energetic and adventurous flexibility they've honed and finely tuned since Choice (Fresh Sound New Talent, 2016.) Credit "Baccatum" and "Night Creatures" as examples of Bareket's evolving sense of composition, sounding simultaneously like an all-out blowing session as well as thought-out structures."

"A young sax trio that knows how it is to sound like you're playing under the bridge, they let the late night New York vibe fly hitting notes just short of skronk. With a vibe that can turn any day part in to after hours, these cats have what it takes to blow up a storm with nary a cloud in sight."

"New York City is still the jazz capital of the world. For about a century, young musicians have gone there from nearly every country to be in the midst of the growth and ferment of music that is in a constant state of change and challenge. The baritone saxophonist Eden Bareket is relatively new to the city. Bareket was born in Buenos Aires, grew up in Israel and has been a New Yorker since 2013. The trio featuring him, his bassist brother, Or, and Chilean drummer Felix Lecaros is in growing demand as a unit, and its members get frequent calls for assorted individual gigs on the New York scene. In command of the baritone sax from its lowest register to the altissimo range, Bareket’s new album Night also demonstrates his scope as a composer. All of the pieces are his except Matti Caspi’s “Lost Melody,” which Bareket arranged. “Baccatum” illustrates his touch as a composer, the solo abilities of all three, and the group interaction that enlivens every track. In addition to the CD version, they recorded it in a YouTube video."
