Album Review

The Israeli pianist Omer Klein makes an impressive debut on the American jazz scene with this CD. Well accompanied by bassist Omer Avital, drummer Ziv Ravitz, and percussionist Itamar Doari, Klein's ten originals blend Middle Eastern-flavored themes and rhythms with thoughtful jazz improvisations. "Abutbul" is an infectious opener, gradually building steam and ending with a Avital's wailing arco bass solo as the piece fades. The haunting melody "Tiul Be 'Israel" sounds like a religious chant that has been transformed into an intricate jazz vehicle. Avital adds an oud solo in the brisk but charming "Netanya", though he oddly does not play the ancient instrument in "Oud Song." To add a little variety, Klein adds a wordless vocal chant to the mellow "Matchut." Middle Eastern influences have been used on occasion by American jazz musicians, but it is even more interesting to hear how a native of the region adapts the music of his land to entice jazz listeners into exploring less familiar territory.
