A cool Israeli outfit that's about to release an album (mixed by Udi Koomran):

Their bio from Myspace:

The Israeli Prog band, Sanhedrin, got started at 1998 as a Camel's covers ensemble, established by the Barness brothers, Aviv (keyboards) and Sagi (bass guitar), with the drummer Alon Badt and the guitarist Shachar Dor. At the same time, Aviv Barness began to write original music for the band and collected original materials. The guitarist player Ellad Abraham gathered them when their guitarist left, and brought with him different aspects and some new musical ideas. Sanhedrin started to make first steps as an original material band, while each of the group members contribute his share and influence as the style of the band got developed. Zivit Naor, (back then Zivit Petit), joined the band as a flute player and the ensemble started to perform on stage. Drummer Alon Badt left the band and went overseas and been replaced by Yatziv Kaspi, who came with his own musical attitude. Sanhedrin continued to perform but as the time went by, the group aimed to record an album. During that time, Yatziv left the band because of some artistic disagreements and Ellad Abraham left for academic studies. Later on he will establish with his friend, Arik Hayat, a band named Sympozion. Sanhedrin bumped into a crossroad, looking for a new guitarist and a new drummer. Gadi Ben Elisha, a well known professional guitar player, which plays with Shem-Tov Levi (Sheshet, Ketsat Acheret) among other artists, joins the band. The drummer has been replaced for a short period of time by Shai Pasternak; a Berkley University graduate, until Igal Baram took that function. During all that, the band has process their original materials, rising up their own standards and an album has come into being. Meanwhile, the flute player, Zivit Naor left the band and became a mom of 2. The band members did not give up on their dream and Shem-Tov Levi joined them for the rest of the recordings. These days Udi Koomran is mixing and revealing the true colors of the materials in order to release their album and the band is looking farward to get back on stage soon

Sagi Barness - Bass Guitar,
