His latest album “Click Right Here” is a wonderful piece of art, it features 10 songs and has a run time of about 31 minutes. The album is one of the most unique works of art I have witnessed, the whole album has a strong storyline and an interesting message. He wrote this album during the pandemic when he saw the whole world was dependent on social media and technology.
“Click Right Here” is an album full of hilarious events and emotions. On this record Ori’s hilarious attempt to showcase social media and its issues are remarkable. Talking about the songs in detail, the most popular song on the record is “clicked on romance”. As expected, the song starts with full-on swing music with a groovy drum beat and trumpets and the bass line with comping rhythms on piano. The powerful and deep voice of Ori is exceptional. The song is aboutmeeting a woman on social media. it’s both fun and groovy.
The most hilarious and quirky song on the album is “My Finger Slipped”. It is such a relatable song. The events described in this song has happened to everyone one of us, from pocket dialing to sending the wrong emojis, this song is a feeling for all finger slippers. The music is so great. The slow and mellow pace of drums is followed by trumpets and bassline and some great riffs in between are marvelous. A lovely romantic song called “Would You Swing Way” is yet another masterpiece, the song has a beautiful melody and some fantastic vocals are the heart and soul of it.
The whole album is just amazing as every song has a storyline and the music is out of the world. It is a must-listen album for everyone who is a fan of jazz and for every music lover in general.
