"Fascinating… Should appeal to fans of John Zorn's mystical projects and fans of Anat Cohen (and family)."
Michael Ricci, Editor AllAboutJazz.com
"Brimming with inspired performance... Displaying the tasteful restraint and maturity of seasoned artistry..."
"…subtlety and understatement on this lyrical and introspective effort… Elron is captivating as both a bassist and a composer on the promising Fluctuation"
Alex V. Henderson
Fluctuation is the debut of double-bass player and composer Noam Elron as band-leader. After many years as a sideman and arranger, and a few projects for film and theatre, Elron has put together a tight outfit of some of Israel's most impressive young Jazz talent, and together they serve a helping of Elron's compositions and one piece by Piazzolla.
Elron's romantic melodies and intricate contrapuntal arrangements are set against a backdrop of hard to define "quazi-ethnic" rhythms, inspired by the Middle-East, South-America and Flamenco. The sinuous solos of NYC-based flautist Hadar Noiberg, the unique guitar of Dima Gorelik, and the nimble drums of Noam Landsman bring the music to life and make this album a delight.
