His recordings as a solo artist include the newly released “Visions – The Music of Stevie Wonder”, which is among Jazz Week’s top 100 recordings of 2012. Previous releases on his label Ronja Music are “A Gift for You” and “Basic Traneing”. The latter reached number three on the National Jazz Charts in 2004. His recordings “Chicago” (Double-Time) and “Live at The Blue Note” (Half Note) are also fine works.
"From Abbey Lincoln to Sonny Rollins to Atilla Zoller, Yoron Israel and his traps have been welcome on diverse bandstands. He's one of these MVP drummers, capable of driving a large ensemble, coaxing a piano trio, nursing a vocalist, or slashing and bashing a smokin' quintet." - Willard Jenkins, JazzTimes
