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 have earned his music the title: "A new type of Swing", and won extraordinary critical acclaim in Japan, South Africa, Europe, Russia and the United States. 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.

“Translator’s Note”, Tzur’s second album as a leader, was released this year. It is both a departure from and a continuance of “Like a Great River”, his debut which was released in 2015 and received rave reviews around the world.


Tickets are $28, plus applicable fees.
