Over the past five years, Cengiz and I have been involved in a variety of endeavors, including Latin bands, commercials, children's music, and original projects, the last of which is a Middle Eastern jazz CD. These projects have taken us around town and across the seas. I've been listening to him through and around various rhythm sections from numerous bandstands. This project trims down the interaction to a dialogue between two players. The material includes eight original compositions by Cengiz, written as a source of stimulation for the musical conversation. We invite you to listen in. - Eldad Tarmu.
