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.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
