Ilhan Ersahin's Istanbul Sessions

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

The acclaimed New York based Turkish-rooted saxophonist, record producer and club owner (NuBlu) Ilhan Ersahin brings in his Turkish / international jazz / improv combo Istanbul Sessions for a Jersey City session live on WFMU.

Named as a nod to the improv / jam sessions that are a staple of Istanbul's lively jazz scene, Istanbul Sessions is a supergroup featuring some of Turkey's most in-demand studio musicians and pop star accompanists.

The radio show is a tune-up for their big gig at Central Park Summerstage on Sunday afternoon July 3 as part of the ambitious multi-artist multi-genre Turkish concert, Istanbulive II. (They'll also warm up for Summerstage with a show at Joe's Pub on June 29.)

Big thanks to Ernie I. for mixing and Jeff M. for assisting!

Sounding good here in the warm and sunny mitten state, Rob!
  Sat. 6/26/10 6:59pm Your DJ:

Thank you Mitten John! Hope you enjoy the live set, a little off the usual thing for my show as stylistically it's pretty straight up jazz/improv - should be nice though, coming up soon...
  Sat. 6/26/10 7:00pm seang:

I'm gonna check these guys out on Wednesday
  Sat. 6/26/10 7:00pm julian:

Sounding good here in wet and cloudy Japan too, Rob!
  Sat. 6/26/10 7:04pm Mitten John:

Looking forward to it, Rob. Many years of marvelous free jazz listening in my past.

I have to confess, I was rooting for the US but I always root for the African squads so it was pretty gut-wrenching! With Uruguay ahead, they have a real shot to make the quarters - should be interesting...

its a shame Essien is injured otherwise I'd think they'd have an outside chance
