Hey everyone! I hope your summer is going amazing! Now, today I have a different type of review, more or less a style of music that I usually do not cover on this site, Jazz. The reason I say I usually don’t cover this type of music is because we really don’t get a lot of artists similar to the artist for today. The artist I am speaking of is award winning Jazz musician Kobi Arad. Here’s a tidbit on Kobi:
“Kobi Arad is an Israeli-American musician who lives in New York, performs and composes in NYC’s top clubs like Blue Note, Jazz at Lincoln Center and City Winery. He collaborated with Stevie Wonder (a co-production with Stevie Wonder’s manager, Stephany Andrews and Stevie himself) Arad finished his Doctorate in music from New England Conservatory; has 20+ self-titled CD’s on amazon.”
Kobi released a new single entitled, ‘Ellington Upside Down’, celebrating the life and music of the great Duke Ellington. The tune features some amazing guitar jazz feel and piano riffs that will send chills down your spine. I say that meaning if you are a fan of jazz this is your song, this is your music and this is what music is supposed to be like! He has a unique sound and a sound that is not heard with in today’s musicians and I applaud him for doing everything he is doing. He’s an amazing artist and I’m Looking forward to hearing further from him.
