Born and raised in Israel, Idit Shner earned her Doctoral degree at North Texas State and in 2005, somehow landed at the University of Oregon as instructor of saxophone performance. on this album, she leads a quartet on mostly original tunes. I especially liked her title tune, a streaky, challenging, "Tuesday's Blues," and an inspired performance of Jimmy Rowles' "The Peacocks." Much of the remaining program has a Jewish-Israeli flavor, but be assured, this is not Klezmer music. It is, instead, well played straight-down-the-middle-of-the-aisle jazz.
