I've known the music of Itamar Ziegler, an Israeli musician who residents in NYC for 15 years or so - for a pretty long time.
I was fortunate enough to work in a music store when he released his phenomenal The Birds, The Sky, The Trees...All That Shit back in 2005. I remember how much of a cliche I was, pretending to be this guy in High-Fidelity, playing the Beta Band EP and selling five copies of it immediately. Ziegler's album, was that Beta Band cd, everytime I played it, I sold two.
So when I was still co-managingAnova MusicI told Itamar that whenever he has a new album - to count me in, I wanna be a part of it.
In September 2010, Anova released Itamar's new album, his third altogether - Memories of Now
I should first say, that Itamar is the loyal bass player of the Balkan Beat Box for many years now…
