Avi nailed another pair of sax tracks for my song. He always hits a bulls eye and adds the feel and tone I need. Great sounding recordings too, and quick turnaround.
Avi was great! everything sounded excellent, and was completed promptly. I definitely look forward to working with him again!
Another great track from Avi. Nailed it.

Avi did a great job on a tenor sax track playing to a written part, He added his feel and expression to the track and it turned out great. Quick turnaround too!
Avi nailed my tenor sax track perfectly. He has great tone and style. He played to a sheet music part, so he didn't get much chance to improv but he hit it!
Avi is the most professional and accurate saxophone player I've ever got the chance to work with. He’s extremely versatile and has tons of experience. Just let him do his thing and you won't regret it! Highly recommended for anyone that's looking for the perfect sax for their track!
Have you ever heard this saxophone sound in songs or TV that just made you sink in your chair and melt? This is Avi Rafaelov. Having worked with Avi in the past, I always had a great experience. He is super versatile and is able to fit a wide variety of projects. You can expect an accurate and timely delivery, great personality and an easy-going professional that will put his heart and soul into your project. I highly recommend working with Avi!
Professional, hard working and friendly is how I describe Avi. Amazing guy who knows and understands music and more specifically, Jazz. His music is a mix of cutting edge fusion jazz with a hint of nostalgy for the warm, fun tones of the 80s/90s. He is a very capable musician and spans many genres and styles.
