Exotic Tales is the latest album from Eldad Tarmu, the brilliant vibraphonist featured on the Daniel Glass Trio’s debut Something Colorful. Produced by Daniel Glass, this outing finds Tarmu weaving Middle Eastern rhythms and scales into a series of beautiful original compositions. The quartet brings these songs to life with fire, joy and passion! If you enjoyed Something Colorful, you will surely dig Exotic Tales.
Here’s what esteemed jazz critic Scott Yanow had to say about Exotic Tales in the LA Jazz Times:
“Ranging from a jazz waltz to a tango, this CD is a consistent success. The quartet, which also includes pianist Cengiz Yaltkaya, bassist Dustin Morgan and drummer Daniel Glass, is tight and often seems to think as one. Tarmu, who at various times hints at Bobby Hutcherson and Gary Burton but generally plays in his own voice, is one of the underrated greats on his instrument. His solos are inventive yet concise, making each note both unpredictable and logical. This set of high-quality postbop jazz is easily recommended.”
