Oriental Wind - Aroura Borealis (2014)

An excellent new album from the Turkish master of jazz percussion. Featuring an array of top musicians and performances from Önder Focan and Ozan Musluoğlu, among others.

This is very much in keeping musically with his earlier albums with a fusion of Anatolian, Sufi and Balkan tunes and elements of jazz and contemporary music, although this is on the whole more jazz oriented. Of particular note is the track "kabak" with some truly wonderful percussion. Highly recommended indeed for world / jazz fans.
