"Awesome Young Musicians @ Reserve of Orleans"

"Admittedly, I had arrived with low expectations, to hear some "kids" working their way into the music scene, but as soon as they started I know my eyebrows were raised as some of the smoothest "smooth jazz" I had heard by anyone began to flow from the these very young musicians. It was like the visual didn't match the competent often complex sound that flowed seamlessly and effortlessly from the quartet on stage.....................but then, just as my critical mind was trying to create that pigeon hole, they played covers of popular and classic tunes like Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious" and "Summertime", and none of it sounded like anyone else's versions I had experienced." - Crescent City Live

Widely revered for their superior musicianship and talent; YISRAEL offers an impressive approach to music that inspires fans worldwide.  The sibling trio mixes synth sounds with jazz and soul, which fuses into a cool neo-jazz vibe.  Yirmeyahu, YahEl and Yehosheba are YISRAEL a fascinatingly talented family that has emerged as the best young jazz band in the country.

Often compared to musical families like the Jacksons, YISRAEL has matured in their talent before the public as musical prodigies.  Prime examples and products of the Neo Jazz School of Music, there they were formally trained in multiple genres and styles. Dr. Lud Yisrael, founder of the Neo Jazz School of Music and father of the trio, began informally training each of them while they were still in the womb. Throughout their childhood he regularly prescribed jazz and classical music while they slept.  Dr. Lud also a self-taught multi-instrumentalist introduced each to their respective instruments as they expressed interest.

Yirmeyahu, the eldest of the trio, grew up seeing his father play music and as early as nine years old he gained a passion for his fathers first love, the saxophone.  Indeed naturally talented, he quickly developed as a saxophonist, drummer and composer.  Yirmeyahu has contributed much to defining the sound of YISRAEL as a composer as well as assistant musical director. In their latest release Celestial, Yirmeyahu has created a musical journey in what he describes as traveling through the heavens.

YahEl, the youngest of the trio, was second in line to develop his inherited love for music. Seeing his father play piano, he begin playing it at seven.  Eagar to perform in the band with his father and brother, YahEl played his first gig at 8 years old for a Hurricane Katrina Benefit Concert. The pre-curser to The Yisrael Trio began with the father son ensemble of Dr. Lud on bass, Yirmeyahu on Saxophone and Yahel on piano.  YahEl, also classically trained, delivers skillful solos and exhibits effortless proficiency on the piano. As a composer for the trio, YahEl has contributed works that can be described as nu-aged and spirited.

Yehosheba, the only girl in the trio, also remained true to her family heritage.  In true family tradition, she saw her father playing bass and fell in love with it.  She began playing bass at 13 and less than a year she replaced her father in the trio.  A visual artist and musician, Yehosheba brings the elements of visual creativity and style to the trio.  As a bassist, she delivers solidarity and remains the unwavering glue that keeps the band tight.

Love for music and the arts is indelibly YISRAEL's driving force.  Although they have mastered most genres, they would describe what they do as SPIRITUAL MUSIC.  The music comes from deep within their souls, down to their very spirits.  The best attribute of The Yisrael Trio is their ability to share that spirit through music all while pleasing any crowd young or old.
