Always amazing work !!
Jonathan is the true master! He can play the instrument that I never heard before! What a phenomenal musician!
Great musician, wonderful woodwind sound. Really happy of the result.
I really enjoyed working with Jonathan on a couple of cues for a soundtrack. He's been very professional, delivered his tracks very quickly and with great results!
Jonathon is World Class, a mountain of Soul and finesse.Highly recommended !
Had a fantastic experience with Yonnie. His profile only hints at his expressive, virtuoso-level of playing, across a broad range of woodwind instruments. We brought him into our project to do an improvisation loosely centered around a musical theme that was written, and he went above and beyond to create music that was so compelling and evocative, we ended up incorporating it into our final product. He did this on THE FIRST TAKE. Sincere, humble, kind, and grounded--a pleasure to work with.
What a great musician! Jonathan brought my music to another level! Can't wait for the next collaboration!
Jonathan, is an excellent pro-musician and a very good guy. I got didgeridoo parts and they're really magic. He felt my music and put a part of his soul into it. It was not just the work, but the total involvement! Highly recommended service.

Keep the faith brother Yonnie you rock!!
Yonnie is an outstanding musician!
couldn't ask for a better toping for my project.
The track he sent was beyond what I had in mind, you could tell the irreplaceable years of experience in his playing,
Sound quality was impeccable, not any different from any fancy studios I am used to work in.
Working with Yonnie was a treat, fast, accurate and positive all along the way, there's no doubt I will hire him again in the future and recommend his musicianship talent and workflow around my circles.
Jonathan did a beautiful job playing duduk and clarinet on my song. He has a bold and distinctive voice on his instruments and incredible tone and control. He was flexible, creative and Very generous with the parts he sent. Very highly recommended
I have used some of Yamma Ensemble music during a weekly "prayer for Israel" meeting I attend weekly. While I truly enjoy many of the Ensemble offerings, I've got to confess that I find Yonnie's musical expression as particularly moving (soulful).
Jonathan informed me that the shakuhachi piece I had written would be near impossible to play, as it wasn't in the key that the shakuhachi is made for, and then he made a demo to show how it would sound if I continued down that path. He saved me from my own ignorance! So in the end I didn't need to hire Jonathan, but I wouldn't hesitate to in the future - he gave his time and knowledge generously, and his communication was very courteous, prompt, and informative!
Jonathan is an amazing multi instrumentalist, I’ve been working with him for years in the studio as well as on stage and he never seize to amaze me. It’s his unique sound and taste that makes him one of the best woodwinds player in Israel.
Yonnie recorded Shofar parts for my recently released Sephardic Treasures album by Soprano Meets Bass, on Parma and in consideration for a Grammy. His work, though remote, was thoroughly professional, with excellent communications and reasonable rates. Can’t wait to work with him on modern woodwinds or other traditional instruments! Highly recommended.
