“Beam me up, Scotty” is a catchphrase that made its way into popular culture from the science fiction television series Star Trek. It comes from the command Captain Kirk gives his chief engineer, Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, when he needs to be transported back to the Starship Enterprise. (Wikipedia)
Launching The Mission
Ever since childhood, Shauli Einav, Saxophonist & composer dreamed of being beamed from one place to another just like in Star Trek, it took him a while to figure out that it is impossible at the moment, and probably not in his lifetime. But as a musician, Shauli manages to fulfill his dream – to tour with his band across countries & continents to play for audiences on many stages, or rather a “Transporter deck” at different clubs and festivals.
What drives Shauli is:
“To help people shift their perception and their reality… away from the mundane, the everyday… and towards the surreal, the sublime… to a spot that connects you to the beauty of life.”
The “Beam Me Up” Project
After three years of working with his jazz quartet, came the urge to document these journeys, these days came to life a new crowdfunding campaign to raise the money for the recoding of the new album, and they need your help.
About Shauli Einav
Shauli now lives in Paris after seven fruitful years in the local jazz scene of NYC, there he played with some of today’s leading jazz figures such as Aaron Goldberg, Avishai Cohen, and many more.
Growing up in Israel, Einav started playing the violin as a kid, before switching to the saxophone and started playing with many Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv based bands, there to be discovered by the legendary American saxophonist Arnie Lawrence, who came at the time to Israel in order to help bring peace between Jews and Arabs breaking the barrier with music, a meeting that had a great impact on Shauli and many other great musicians of today’s jazz generation.
