Three States of Freedom is a release by Tom Soloveitzik, Kevin Davis and Korhan Erel. It was recorded in Jaffa at the end of the trio’s tour in Israel in June 2010. It is released on the Portuguese label Creative Sources. The tour consisted of three concerts in Tel Aviv and one each in Jerusalem and Haifa and took place soon after IDF forces attacked the Gaza aid flotilla. As musicians from three states, Israel, Turkey and the US, we felt that we should not be a part of the cultural embargo and show our solidarity with people who are pro-freedom.
