The interplay and cohesion on Oded Tzur's 'Here Be Dragons' is fabulous throughout / 91.1WTJU

"Here Be Dragons is Oded Tzur's debut on the legendary record label ECM….‘Here Be Dragons' (HIC SVNT DRACONES in the original Latin) was an inscription indicating unexplored territories on old maps. Tzur composed the album for a new quartet, featuring Nitai Hershkovits on piano, Petros Klampanis on bass (also appearing on Tzur's previous albums) and Johnathan Blake on drums." The interplay and cohesion is fabulous throughout this performance. Their performance insists that the group must have had scripts, but sometimes the best jazz discovers beauty and delight that hasn't been shared before. This is a wonderful disc.
