Zohar, which arranged Eran's compositions from his first album "In good spirit" gave a new interpretation to the initial intimate pieces, originally performed in the album by a trio(oud, bass guitar and percussion).

In his work, Zohar (which means - Radiance in hebrew) sheds a new light on Zamir's (nightingale in Hebrew) compositions, helping to express the beauty of each instrument as an individual, enhancing and enriching the musical experience and giving it, together with Sound engineer Ben Spector, more width and depth.

These two albums complete and complement each other, and are like a "naked" version, which supports the value of melody and intimacy, and a "dressed" version, resonating the quality of the arrangement. The nightingale and the radiance around it.
