Brooklyn-based guitarist Mordy Ferber has won the accolades of his
collaborators and listeners.
The thirty-nine year old Israeli-born guitarist was a child singer who
learned guitar to accompany himself. He studied classical music, got into
rock then eventually settled on jazz, taking an interest in Django Reinhardt, Charlie
Christian, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall and John Scofield.
Ferber became a studio musician when he was fifteen, appearing on Israeli
radio and television shows, performing in a wide variety of styles. When he
was 23, he won a scholarship to the Berklee College Of Music. Since
relocating to New York in the late 80s, Mordy has performed and recorded
with Michael Brecker, Eddie Gomez, Dave Liebman, among many others. He's
led his own groups, and served repeatedly as a sure fingered sideman in any
number of eclectic musical encounters.
