Oz Noy
The Story
Oz Noy is a guitar player from Israel, who started his professional career at the age of 13 playing jazz, blues, pop and rock music. At age 16 he was already playing with leading Israeli musicians and performers, and at age 24 he was one of the most established studio guitar players in the country, and played on numerous records. Since his arrival to New York in 1996 he has made a big impact on the local music scene with his unique sound, compositions and style, bringing a mixture of pop, rock, blues, funk, and jazz, into a cohesive and intoxicating groove. Oz Noy's instrumental fusion outing "Ha!" features drummers Anton Fig, Keith Carlock, and bassists Will Lee and James Genus, and guest guitarist Mike Stern (Billy Cobham, Miles Davis) and keyboardist George Whitty (Brecker Brothers). Even Stern remarked, "Oz is a fantastic guitar player... one of the best I've ever seen... he's just too good!"
