Itamar Shatz on SoundBetter

Producing, mixing & recording saxophone remotely. Let's make music :) See attached mp3 for my Sax Reel & Soundcloud playlist for my Production Reel.

Saxophone: I have 15 years of experience as a performing and recording tenor/soprano saxophonist. Being a very versatile player, I've worked with a wide variety of artists such as jazz & world music bassist Avishai Cohen, Klezmer star Frank London, West African-influenced drummer Ben Aylon and Indie songwriter & producer O Mer (to name a few). Having an intuitive understanding as well as familiarity with a multitude of styles and genres, I can fluently improvise, create parts and add different textures that will perfectly serve your music. I also play EWI, if you're looking for some mono synth action.

Production: I've been producing for the past 5 years, working on my own music as well as that of artists in my community such as Dor Heled, Yoni Marianer & Loren Beri. Although every song is different and is being treated as such,my general philosophy of production is to strive for maximum impact with minimum sonic information. It is a kind of work that is driven only by what's essential as opposed to everything that's possible. Being a songwriter myself, I have a deep understanding of form and arrangement. I can write and record parts using synths , drum machines and samples, as well as saxophones. If needed, I can also outsource live musicians on guitar, piano, bass, drums or anything else - choosing from a strong network of studio musicians in New York City.

Endorse Itamar Shatz
  1. Review by Chris B.

    Itamar killed it. Like, for real. He delivered exactly what I was looking for, and his ability to improv different melodies was on point. He even provided some harmony sections that enhanced the track even more. Will definitely work with him again!

  2. Review by Amazing

    Itamar is a master at his craft, who goes over and beyond the call of duty.
    He's professional and dependable on turning around work promptly.
    I'll definitely be working with him in the future, you should as well.

    Itamar is one of the best musicians I've had the pleasure of working with, on top of being a superb producer saxophone player and song writer, he is a great and humble human being and an extremely hard worker.
    Itamar's attention to details is of a level that you rarely come across and he's understanding of grooves and rhythms is extremly unique.
    I will whole heartedly recommend Itamar to any song at any capacity, he will undoubtedly enhance your music.

    In the music industry, it's never easy to find top quality musicians for hire who are also affordable. Itamar is not only a stellar Saxophonist, producer and mixing engineer, but he is also a serious and committed artist who is willing to lend his dedication and full scope of abilities to your project. And for a good price too! Hit him up before he's too "Grammyed" to work for this much again.

    I have recorded Itamar for several productions and you will not believe the uniqueness and energy he will inject to your song! He is an incredible musician, and his saxophone abilities combined with improv, production and knowledge in processing sound is rare.
