Karate was an Americanmarker indie jazz band. The band was formed in Bostonmarker, Massachusettsmarker in 1993 by Geoff Farina, Eamonn Vitt and Gavin McCarthy. In 1995, Jeff Goddard joined the band as bass player, and Vitt moved to second guitar. Vitt departed Karate to pursue a medical career in 1997.

Farina developed hearing problems due to twelve years of performance with Karate and was forced to disband the group in July 2005. Their final show was played in Romemarker, Italymarker, on July 10, 2005. Their music was primarily released on Southern Records.

In 2007, the former band members decided to release a live album 595. Often, Karate was sent live material from their own performances (often from sound technicians). This happened also after their performance on May 5th at Stuk, Leuven, Belgium. Karate was so astonished by the quality of the recording they decided to release this "posthumous" live album of their 595th live performance.
