Drummer Yoron Israel with ''High Standards''

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 5, 2013 - 8:00pm

Yoron Israel, a native Chicagoan, is one of the most gifted musicians of his generation. Yoron's exciting and tasteful drumming, along with his compositional talents are spotlighted throughout his recordings: "Basic Traneing", "Chicago", "Live at the Blue Note" and "A Gift for You" These fine works have received enthusiastic praise from journalists, musical peers and fans alike. They represent the extensive depth of his musicianship as he continues to evolve as a leader.

He brings his unique influences and experiences in the Jazz, World Styles, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Funk, R & B and Orchestral idioms full circle with his compositions, arrangements, repertoire and ensemble concepts.

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."

High Standards is Yoron with Pianist Laszlo Gardony, Bassist John Lockwood, Saxophonist Lance Bryant
