Cross-genre trio Digital Primitives returns to Israel for a three-date tour, from February 5 to February 10. The band, which includes Israeli saxophonist Assif Tsahar, maverick New York-based multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore and US drummer Chad Taylor, will bring its high-energy mix of jazz, world music, American folk music, soul and blues to Tel Aviv (Levontin 7, on February 5 and 9, both at 8 p.m.) and Ra’anana (The Center for the Arts on February 10 at 9 p.m.).

There is absolutely nothing conventional about Digital Primitives, with Cooper-Moore an endless source of energy and sonic adventures on all manner of instrument – from the conventional to the highly personalized – while Tsahar blows hard and free on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, and Taylor drives hard from the back on drums.

The band’s shows are always entertaining and always incorporate the element of surprise. Cooper-Moore, in particular, is likely to go off on a musical tangent at any given point in the proceedings while Tsahar and Taylor tag along for the ride.

The band’s wide- ranging stylistic spread appeals to fans from different sectors of the music market, from diehard jazz lovers to funk freaks and ethnic music fans, and there’s some grungy rock energies mixed in there as well.
