Yoron Israel

Yoron Israel, a native Chicagoan, is one of the most gifted and sought after musicians in the music industry today. Yoron's exciting and tasteful drumming, along with his compositional talents are spotlighted throughout his CD’s. They are “Basic Traneing” (Ronja Music Company), “Chicago” (Double Time), “Live at the Blue Note” (Half Note), “A Gift for You” (Ronja Music Company) All of these fine works have received enthusiastic praise from journalists, musical peers and fans alike. The CD’s represent the extensive depth of Yoron Israel’s musicianship as he continues to evolve as a leader. He brings his unique influences and experiences in the “Jazz”, Latin, Gospel, Funk, R & B and Orchestral idioms full circle with his compositions, arrangements, repertoire and ensemble concepts. “Music to be enjoyed by all”, as Jack DeJohnette quotes, “A Gift for You” is a sparkling musical offering from a drummer who has good taste. He has a sense of direction and a feeling of joy in his drumming, compositions and arrangements. Yoron Israel is an important voice you should listen to.”
