MUSICIAN Born:

Koby Israelite

I 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.

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

Eyal Maoz's Edom: Hope and Destruction

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
