Alon Benjamini has earned his place among the best modern jazz drummers and band
leaders in the Israeli scene thanks to his forming of his own style, which combined
charm and emotional intelligence with virtuosic drums work. Combining his jazz DNA
with funk, Israeli, and rock elements, Benjamini is the author of an unclassifiable sound
and style that has been making him an exceptional and important voice among the
nation’s best jazz drummers for many years.
Highlighted by major clubs as an industry pillar at their utmost distinct productions (and those include many, such as Red Sea Jazz Festival, Cornelia Street Café, Bern Jazz Festival, Smalls Jazz Club, Nublu, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, Levontin 7, The Zone, One Day Jazz Festival, and Iwakuni Jazz Week), he has earned prominence thanks to his long time flourishing career and esteemed collaborations with Reggie Workman, Roy Hargrove, Omer Avital, Joel Frahm, David Gibson, and Aaron Goldberg.
His many bands’ prestigious week-long residency at Israel’s top jazz establishment, Beit Haamudim, is already highly anticipated as one of the year’s most exciting music event.
