Sounds that are up to the moment with a nod to tradition…

Tenor saxist Arnan Raz brings together a lithe team of Eyal Hai/as, Daniel Meron/p, Tamir Shmerling/b and Dani Danor/dr for a collection of lyrical originals. Both Raz and Hai have vintage Old School warm tones, and they meld like a French sauce together for the sleek “Chains of Stories” and the lightly swinging “Soul Talk” Meron is reflective on “Ending” and trickles with Shmerling for a bed of rose pedals as the soft saxes land on “Our Story” and with Danor’s steady pulse create a seductive groove for the swaying “We Used to Fly.” Cirrus clouds of swing.
