The free-form jazz riffs of NYC’s East Village and the exotic-tinged jazz rhythms of Istanbul come together harmoniously on the compelling new album ILHAN ERSAHIN’S ISTANBUL SESSIONS with ERIK TRUFFAZ. Noted saxophonist/composer Ilhan Ersahin, who helms the acclaimed Nublu Records and adjoining East Village nightclub of the same name, has spent many years traveling to Istanbul, and absorbing the great music scene blossoming there. The jam sessions and creative circles he found in Istanbul are the inspiration behind ISTANBUL SESSIONS. Ilhan Ersahin played with many important names like Eddie Henderson, Kenny Wollesen, Norah Jones, Bebel Gilberto, Matt Penman, Otto, U Roy, etc.
