Product Overview

Born in Tel Aviv, multi-instrumentalist Koby Israelite has been playing music since the age of nine. Conservatory trained on piano and keyboards, he was drawn to punk and heavy metal as a teenager, switched to drums and then got turned on to Jazz, World Music and the Downtown Scene. For his third Tzadik CD, this tireless and ever creative musical spirit turns his hand to the complex lyricism of Zorn's complex Book of Angels. Interpreting tunes handpicked by Zorn himself, Koby mixes in everything he knows, including metal, jazz, gypsy and klezmer with stylish flair and great virtuosity. Naked City, Zappa, Taraf de Haidouks and Fantomas all rolled into one, this is an amazing orchestral achievement by an exciting young musical adventurer.

Artist Bio
Koby IsraeliteI was born in Tel Aviv Israel November the 23rd 1966. I studied piano at the conservatoire of music from the age of 9. By the time I was 14 years old I begged my parents for a drum-kit. Within 2 years I settled for a makeshift drum-set. At 17 I studied the drums for 2 years with The David Rich drumming school in Tel Aviv.I came to London to pursue my studies at Guildhall. I began playing in and around London as a session drummer. I played, recorded and toured with various artists. During this period I started thinking about working on my own music. By 1999 I started writing and recording.Once I had written enough material that I was happy with I sent a demo to John Zorn. As a writer I really like bands like 'Naked City' which incorporated different styles and genres in one album. My writing reflected this style and I thought that if anyone, John Zorn would dig it. My hunch was right. John Zorn asked me to start writing for Tzadik's 'Radical Jewish Series'.I have three releases with Zorn's label Dance of the idiots, Mood Swings and Orobas. The latter album is a selection of compositions from John Zorn's Masada Book Two 'Book of Angels'. --Koby Israelite
