Sunrise (Origin Records) by Amit Friedman
One of the most joyful albums I've heard in some time, and currently sitting at the top of my Best of 2012 (thus far). Generally categorized as World Jazz due to the fusion of jazz and Middle-East musics, but this is the kind of album that transcends classification.
Personnel: Amit Friedman (tenor & soprano sax), Amos Hoffman (oud & guitar), Omri Mor (piano), Gilad Abro (bass), Amir Bresler (drums), Rony Iwryn (percussion), and Chen Shenar, Avner Kelmer, Noam Haimovitz Weinschel, and Maya Belzitsman (violins, viola, cello).
