New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Tales of Blood (In A Hot Distant Land) is the first release from virtuoso jazz pianist Ido Spak. Many choose to travel simply for personal pleasure but Ido Spak has ensured his journeys are available for everyone to experience musically. Though originally from Israel, Spak has traveled the world, experiencing music, sound and rhythms of all kinds, bringing them together in a way which takes the listener through lands which are both familiar and alien. Wrong Direction, Spak's latest album, takes inspiration from musicians of Iran, Syria and Palestine to conjure up images of deserts beneath vast skies, bazaars and bustling communities, constantly shifting in tone and texture and never less than utterly enthralling.
"Absolutely one-of-a-kind... a master of jazz fusion" - Jazz Corner
Born in Israel, Ido Spak has lived in Holland, UK and Germany, though his travels as a musician have taken him to areas that could well be described as 'off the map'. Spak is determined in his approach to jazz, dedicated to making his performances a constantly evolving process, eschewing the conventions of playing standards and using the left hand on the piano to improvise as much as the right, regularly interchanging between the two. Inspired in his youth by rock music and classical composers such as Beethoven and Liszt, he developed a passion first for bebop, then the techniques of Berg and Schönberg, in particular their use of twelve-tone serialism.

Wrong Direction offers melodies and rhythms from throughout the Middle Eastern region weaved around his complex, classically-influenced, avant-garde jazz compositions to great effect. Spak is accompanied on the album by drummer, Jan-Phillip Meyer; bassist, Gerrit Lütgering, and trombonist, Jean-Philippe Tremblay.
