Koby Israelite


Blues from Elsewhere has lots of elsewhere, a little bit of blues, a whole lot of klezmer, and some plain old rock and roll. There's accordion along with Nashville-style guitars, twangy jaw harps, soaring clarinets and saxophones, and a fair share of banjos, mandolins, and bouzoukis. Most of these are are played by +koby israelite himself. Instrumentation and styles change throughout the album, and even within individual songs. Labeling this music seems impossible.
