Hailing from Israel, saxophonist Daniel Rotem has performed across the globe from Canada to South Africa. The hard bop musician who borrows unusual harmonies from his Israeli roots was awarded a full scholarship to Berklee in 2009. Among his many distinctions, Rotem was chosen as a finalist in the live auditions for the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance Masters Program in 2012.
