IDIT SHNER

- TUESDAY’S BLUES

2008-10-20

IDIT SHNER - TUESDAY’S BLUES Idit Shner (tenor sax) release of “Tuesday’s Blues is a must have for any jazz lover, it’s a tale of nursery rhymes and ancient melodies from the Jewish liturgy in a jazz setting. The album starts off from track one (Yellow Moon) with an upbeat groove that from the first note you get the feeling Idit Shner and band mates are going for the gusto. After “Yellow Moon”, she soothes the listener with a mellower tune with track (2)”Elisheve Doll “, next is the peppy “Tuesday’s Blues” which is one of my favorites. I love the bass walking and Idit on sax solo (she even throws in a little “If I only had a brain/heart from the Wizard of Oz) which was very clever. I also loved the solos of Stefan Karlsson (piano); Steve Pruitt (drums) on this track. The majority of this album is traditional songs from Israel with a jazz interpretation, sprinkled with some originals like the title cut and “The Peacocks”. This is a really good jazz album, I enjoyed all seven tracks and this was my first experience listening to Idit Shiner but it will not be my last.-Corey Jones
