Oz Noy

"It's Jazz. It just doesn't sound like it."


This is how virtuoso guitarist Oz Noy describes his intoxicating blend of Jazz, Funk, Rock, Blues, and R&B.

Born in Israel, Oz started his professional career at the age of 13 playing Jazz, Blues, Pop and Rock music. By age 16, he was playing with top Israeli musicians and artists. By age 24, he was one of the most established studio guitar players in the country. Oz was also a member of the house band on Israel's top-rated television show for more than two years.

Since his 1996 arrival in New York, Oz has made a huge impact on the local and international music scene. His unique and intoxicating style has broken all the rules of instrumental guitar music by focusing on the groove. All-stars such as Keith Carlock, Anton Fig, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Dave Weckl often contribute on drums, with bassists Will Lee, James Genus, and Reggie Washington.

In 2003, Oz released his debut record – "Oz Live" – recorded at NYC's legendary Bitter End.

In 2004, Oz signed with Magna Carta Records and in 2005, released his highly-acclaimed studio record "HA!" with his all-star band featuring Fig, Carlock, Lee and Genus plus special guests Mike Stern and George Whitty.

In April of 2007, a licensing deal with Magna Carta and Japanese label Videoarts opened the door for Oz's music in Japan. Later that year saw the release of "Fuzzy," Oz's third record under the Magna Carta label. For Fuzzy, Oz's all-star band is joined by various special guests including Colaiuta, bassist Jimmy Johnson, and keyboardists Whitty and Jim Beard.

September, 2009, saw the release of Oz's fourth album, "Schizophrenic," featuring Lee, Fig, Carlock, Weckl, Ricky Peterson, Chris Palmero, and special guest Steve Lukather.

In November of 2011, Oz released his fifth studio album "Twisted Blues Vol. 1" Featuring Vinnie Colaiuta, Anton Fig, Chris Layton, Will Lee, Roscoe Beck , John Medeski, Jerry Z, Reese Wynans, Ralph Macdonald and special guests Eric Johnson & Allen Toussaint.

Oz also conducts periodic master classes at The Collective School of Music (New York City), Musicians Institute (Los Angeles), and others.
