THE STORYTELLER, the debut from alto saxophonist Uri Gurvich, blends the classic swing and structure of post-bop with melodies that reference traditional Jewish folk and Sephardic influences. The album seems right at home on John Zorn's Tzadik label with its emphasis on contemporary Jewish composers, yet it feels more straightforward and accessible than much of the Tzadik catalog. Gurvich is clearly steeped in the influence of MY FAVORITE THINGS-era John Coltrane, along with Middle Eastern roots music, but he and his crack band bring these elements together in a way that is fresh, forward thinking, and listener-friendly.
