Oded Tzur is a tenor saxophonist with a warm sound reminiscent of John Coltrane. He is often praised for his narrative compositions, his unique control over the saxophone's dynamics and his singular "sliding" technique.
Originally from Tel Aviv, Trur convincingly bridges Western and Eastern music and studied Indian music with the legendary flutist Hariprasad Chaurasia at the Rotterdam conservatory. He currently resides in New York where he is part of the growing scene of remarkable Israeli jazz expats.
