Musician

Noam Wiesenberg

Hailing from Tel Aviv, Noam Wiesenberg is a highly sought after bassist and arranger on the New York music scene. Noam was born into a music family, and exposed to many different genres at an early age. After 12 years of playing the cello, Noam switched his focus to the double bass at age 20. The first of several musical crossroads, he chose to focus on jazz because he was mesmerized by the musical capabilities of jazz musicians. Following this transition, he quickly became an integral part of the Israeli Jazz scene. His classical background informs both his composition and arranging, and has lead to collaborations with some of the top symphony orchestras in Israel, including The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, The Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion, The Haifa Symphony Orchestra, and the Israel Defense Force Education Unit Orchestra

Camila Meza: Ámbar

Read "Ámbar" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

Four years later, after some more sporadic get-togethers and a bump or two in the road, we have their debut.

Noam Wiesenberg: Roads Diverge

Read "Roads Diverge" reviewed by Geno Thackara


A title such as Roads Diverge probably isn't surprising from someone as well-traveled as Noam Wiesenberg. The sound largely sticks to one category--mostly-acoustic contemporary jazz with a high dose of rollicking cheer--and yet still reflects how much the young bassist has learned from his travels through life so far. The confident smoothness, eclectic writing-style and casting ...

10th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival To Be Held Across Two Sundays In Brooklyn’s Urban Meadow, June 11 & 18 From 1-6 PM

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill…The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.” —Nate Chinen, New York ...
