Olga Kivius If sometimes you look for new albums of John Zorn's Bar Kokhba and you can't find them, I guess, the best way would be to listen to this album of Dimyon, the group of outstanding musicians leaded by the Tzadik's guitarist Eyal Maoz ) I consider them as the younger brothers of Bar Kokhba and this album is SO GOOD, that i don't know for sure which music i like more) I've listened to this live (and I suspect- the only one) recording thousands times and I still really enjoy it ) Highly recommended.) Favorite track: Tsaad צעד.

Dimyon is an exciting fuse of Maoz’s unique musical voice with an array of genres such as modern Jewish-Middle Eastern, classical, jazz and avant-garde music. A Jewish acoustic project, Dimyon has earned critical acclaim in Israel. If one has to define influential figures for Dimyon, John Zorn's Acoustic Masada and Frank Zappa would make the list.

Compositions and arrangements by Eyal Maoz featuring an acoustic instrumentation with acoustic guitar, viola, cello, acoustic bass, and percussion.

“There's no doubt Eyal Maoz is in a exclusive club of post-Jimi Hendrix guitarists who include Nels Cline, Hilmar Jensson, Scott Fields, David Torn, and the legendary Terje Rypdal.”– Michael G. Nastos – All Music Guide. September 2009

“A cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc Ribot…keep your eyes and ears on this guy” – John Zorn

“Maoz’s playing is just as often elegant, understated and even gorgeous…Wonderlech! ” - Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player Magazine

“A musical deep thinker” – Washington City Paper

“NYC’'s guitar shredder” - Time Out New York Magazine


released January 1, 2015
