Released Jan 2005
cd time - 52:56
US Price $16.00
Another exhilarating CD of stop on a dime genre-smashing courtesy of Koby Israelite, who jumps from Death Metal and Jazz to Klezmer, Balkan and Gypsy music like a chameleon on acid. This is music of great imagination, filled with humor, virtuosic technique and fabulous detail. Koby has matured since his first CD for Tzadik, and Mood Swings is the work of a master. In the tradition of Naked City and Mr. Bungle, Koby Israelite is forging a new Jewish music with power, wit and
an intense passion for life.
