Información Oded Tzur:

"Urgency coexists with Zen-like calm on the darkly brilliant sophomore album by tenorsaxophonist Oded Tzur. The dynamics of his fearless quartet mirror its ever-shifting storytellingintent. A student of Indian classical music, Tzur is an architect of stealth, meticulously buildinghis tunes from the ground up. At times, his very quietude seems to roar; the way he starts andends “Single Mother” suggests a volcano on the ocean floor. An explorer of the microtonal anda player of such restraint and patience that his explosions are particularly startling, Tzurdelivers a unique sound, giving his instrument pioneering dimension and depth".— Carlo Wolff, DownbeatBIO:Oded Tzur is a New York City based saxophonist, composer and bandleader. His work draws influence from the art of storytelling and explores relationships between ancient and modern musical traditions. His two albums on Enja Records (2015 & 2017) have earned his music the title: “A new type of Swing”, and won extraordinary critical acclaim in Japan, South Africa, Europe, Russia and the US. Tzur’s unique language of improvisation takes the listener on a journey many describe as “musical storytelling”, and evokes deep contrasts between silent passages and dramatic crescendos.Coming from the Tel Aviv jazz scene of the 2000’s and a protégé of the classical saxophone maestro Gersh Geller, Oded Tzur’s background consisted of rigorous training in a number of musical styles. His curiosity for improvised music led him to discover the ancient art of Indian classical music, which had set him on the path to become what Downbeat Magazine later called “an explorer of the microtonal”.In order to pursue the rare undertaking of playing Indian music, a style heavily based on microtonality, on a western instrument such as the saxophone, Tzur embarked on a decade-long research to construct a new saxophone technique — A Middle Path — as it was later named. The technique enables the saxophone to slide between the notes and highlight specific microtones, and departures from traditional saxophone playing so distinctly that the Indian grandmaster Hariprasad Chaurasia once summed it up by saying: “If a curtain were to be drawn in front of him, no one could tell which instrument was being played”.In 2011, Tzur moved to New York and established the Oded Tzur Quartet. This step marked a shift in the scope of his work as a composer: sliding not only between the notes of the saxophone, but also between the melodic universes of Indian classical music and jazz.Since its creation, the quartet has toured around the world, presenting audiences with its captivating language of improvised music. The quartet’s two albums, Like a Great River and Translator’s Note (Enja Records 2015 & 2017) have established Tzur as a singular voice in today’s jazz scene.Lineup:Oded Tzur - Tenor SaxophoneNitai Hershkovits - PianoPetros Klampanis - Upright BassColin Stranahan - Drums   Album info: Translator's Note (Enja Records 2017) #1 Apple Music "The A-List: Jazz" #1 Spotify "State of Jazz" playlist   Album of the Year - Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz   #3 Best of 2017 Jazz Thing Critics Poll (DE)   "A Volcano on the Ocean Floor" Carlo Wolff, Downbeat Magazine   "If music has the potential to tell stories, saxophonist Oded Tzur proves himself one of the jazz world’s premier storytellers on Translator’s Note" Dan Mcclenaghan, All About Jazz   "In the way that Coltrane found the deepest possible kinship to religious devotion in a record like “A Love Supreme,” Tzur is finding a kinship just as deep and just as simple in essence with poetry and storytelling. The result is music of extraordinary power and beauty and, hallelujah, stunning 21st century originality."
