Marbin is a Chicago-based jazz-rock outfit that was originally formed in Israel in 2007. Largely independent, Marbin have previously released six albums and toured with such august names as Jeff Berlin, Allan Holdsworth and Virgil Donati. It is facile to predict that their jazz-rock proclivities are likely to mirror the company they keep; nevertheless, while indeed keeping true to their “jazz-rock” classification, there is quite a bit more to this band than that simple docket suggests.
Marbin’s seventh album “Israeli Jazz” is an impressive collection of seven instrumental discoveries. Largely based around the swarthy guitar playing of Dani Rabin (no relation) and Danny Markovitch’s saxes, the line-up is completed by the highly competent rhythm section of drummer Blake Jiracek and bassist Jon Nadel.
