O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist and composer Oded Tzur leads a quartet with Nitai Hershkovits (p), Petros Klampanis (b) and Jonathan Blake (d) for Here Be Dragons, his latest release. The dragons are rather peaceful here as the program is mostly the relaxed ballads including three solo expressions: “Miniature 1, 2 and 3” from Hershkovits, Klampanis and Tzur respectively. However the pace accelerates and the spirit livens on “The Dream” before they close with a warm cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love”.
