Welcome to Gilad Atzmon's webpage. This site provides information about Gilad's musical and intellectual activity.  

Gilad Atzmon's music moves more and more towards a cultural hybrid.   Atzmon is interested in exploring the meaning of urban folk, the cultural melting pot of the contemporary city.   Along the years  Atzmon  has managed to merge the music of the Middle East and Eastern Europe together with Jazz and contemporary improvised music. Atzmon believes that if multi cultural identity has any meaning, it better establishes itself in terms of beauty.  Atzmon is a world leading Jazz saxophonist. He also acts as a musical producer- arranger

As a member of the Blockheads, Gilad has recorded and performed with such as Ian Dury, Robbie Williams, Sinead O'Connor and Paul McCartney. As a bandleader and reed player he has been amazing his listeners with his powerful personal style that combines great bebop artistry and Middle-Eastern roots in a sophisticated, sometimes ironical manner. The Observer says: "He creates his own cross cultural idiom." Jazz UK finds his whirlwind approach "dynamic, charismatic and exasperating". This multi-reed talent shows "a seemingly effortless ability to demolish and rebuild any old tune he chooses to play" (Time Out). Influenced by Cannonball Adderley's powerful approach on the sax, Gilad's live performances are simply breathtaking and overwhelming.
