Description

'Here Be Dragons' is the ECM debut of New York based, Tel Aviv born saxophonist Oded Tzur, a strikingly original player and musical storyeller.

Tzur's graceful and fluid tenor sax sound has been influenced by studies with bansuri master Hariprasad Chaurasia, and the concept of raga is subtly embedded in his elegant compositions, played with verve and imagination by his outstanding Israeli-Greek-American jazz group. As DownBeat has observed: "Tzur and his colleagues are definitely on to something." Recorded in June 2019 at Auditorio Stelio Molo in Lugano, and produced by Manfred Eicher, the album is issued as Tzur embarks on an international tour.

Here Be Dragons is released simultaneously on CD and 180g vinyl.

Personnel: Oded Tzur (tenor saxophone); Nitai Hershkovits (piano); Petros Klampanis (double bass); Johnathan Blake (drums)
