ABOUT EDOM

Where Jazz meets Jewish music and Disco, and echoes of Joy Division are counterposed with John Zorn’s Electric Masada, begins the rocking odyssey of Edom.

Featuring Eyal Maoz’s notorious one-of-a-kind approach to composition, and produced by the magic ears of Shanir Blumenkranz, Edom brings us into the much-too-rarely visited junction of instrumental pop, jazz and avant-garde.

featuring…

Eyal Maoz (John Zorn’s Cobra) – Guitar, compositions
Brian Marsella (Cyro Baptista) – Hammond B3 organ, synthesizers
Shanir Blumenkranz (Tzadik, John Zorn) – Bass
Yuval Lion (Pink Noise, Pharoah’s Daughter) – Drums

PRESS & REVIEWS

“Ecstatic music for a new generation” – John Zorn

“Raise your fist. Now extend your index finger and pinky. This album rocks” – Lucid Culture

“Maoz’s playing is just as often elegant, understated and even gorgeous…Wonderlech! ” – Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player Magazine December 2009.

“Maoz redefines what ethnocentric world fusion can be from a mean-streets New York City perspective.”– Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide.

“Maoz’s fearsome foursome wallows in Middle Eastern modes and melodies…and then, just as naturally, melds into sweet melodic wistfulness and exhilarating and blood-curdling Downtown noise…Terrific.” — Jeff Simon, The Buffalo News

“It sucks you up into it’s tornado-like tunnel and makes you a part of it! …this gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED & a “EQ” rating of 4.95 – Dick Metcalf / ZZAJ Music Zine

“The mesmerizing guitarist and composer Eyal Maoz and his band Edom play Middle Eastern infected Avant rock” – Stephanie Steiker, The New Yorker
